Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


I’m just back from a short visit to Taipei, Taiwan. Here are some butterfly shots I took there, using Fujifilm X100S & Raynox DCR-150.

(1) Mangrove Tree Nymph (Idea leuconoe chersonesia), a.k.a. Paper Kite, Rice Paper, or Large Tree Nymph


(2) Blue Glassy Tiger (Ideopsis vulgaris)


(3) Plain Tiger (Danaus chrysippus), a.k.a. African or Asian Monarch
