paper kite

The Paper Kite is of Southeast Asian origin.


From my mother's garden. This beauty kept coming back to the Egyptian starcluster flower until it finally rested on the metal fence.

Hi Anna, It does look like a black and white monarch ^_^ I saw a wiki of paper kite (Idea leuconoe) similar to my spotting except that mine has a wider black border on its wings. Probably one of the subspecies.
