I spotted this in Thung Salaeng Luang National Park. This butterfly was nearly under a leaf when I photographed it so the sky was in the background, kind of blowing out the detail of the wings. The second shot is with the flash.
Thanks a lot! I underestimated this butterfly's beauty. It's getting really popular.
The design is amazing!
Those wings are incredible.
How lovely! Its wings look like stained glass!
He, he... It would be a pity if this beauty would not have any name!! What a gorgeous skipper!!
Thanks bayucca! I was waiting for your ID! What an interesting name for this butterfly.
Hesperiidae (!), Ctenoptilum vasava.
