Revisiting the Butterfly garden @ Pasir Ris Park


The Butterfly garden at Pasir Ris Park is always a place I look forward to visiting! It's one of the best places to see and observe butterflies as well as to photograph them.

mottle emigrant
Mottled Emigrant (Catopsilia pyranthe pyranthe)
mottle emigrant (2) on Cordia cylindristachya
It is extremely difficult to differentiate this from the Lemon emigrant in flight, much easier when they finally decide to spot for a few second so that you can note the difference.

Do head down to the Butterfly garden at Pasir Ris Park to see these flying jewels! :)
