Great Eggfly

Hypolimnas bolina

Description:

This butterfly has brown colored wings with several white marks on it. It has a wingspan of approximately 3 inches. What is interesting is that near the bottom edge of the wing, there is a pattern. And near the top of the wing there seems to be a streak of white. The head is blackish brown with white spots.

Habitat:

I found this butterfly in the Butterfly Garden in Changi Airport. It was currently strolling on a flower. The climate there is pretty moist and cool, though there was a bit of sunlight streaming through. I spotted this butterfly at 3:56 PM.

Notes:

When this butterfly is walking, not flying, its wings aren't spread. Instead they are closely drawn together.
