Shan Nawab

Polyura nepenthes

Description:

large, leaf-wing butterfly

Habitat:

rainforest mixed with grasslands.

Notes:

I spotted this in Thung Salaeng Luang National Park. I was hanging out for a while on some rocks in a very shallow river. There were tons of butterflies around. Just as I was getting ready to leave, this beauty landed on my backpack and didn't budge as I got really close.

Thanks Cindy, Lars and Carol! I was really happy the way the photos turned out too. I didn't crop or edit them in anyway.
