Thanks very much for the response to the first of the “Maolin Beauties” up-loaded yesterday. It’s very encouraging and I hope you’ll like the rest of the series.

Today I’m giving you a “euploea mulciber barsine” ( I think!). Taken in the morning near a road just outside the little town of Maolin in Southern Taiwan. The temperature is already in the 20’s and it’s middle of January!

With my wife we had breakfast among these butterflies. A most memorable sight!

“Euploea is a genus of milkweed butterflies. The species are generally dark in coloration, often quite blackish, for which reason they are commonly called crows. As usual for their subfamily, they are poisonous due to feeding on milkweeds and other toxic plants as caterpillars. The latter are aposematically colored to warn off predators from eating them, and the adult butterflies are often mimicked by unrelated species which are not or less poisonous.” (Wikipedia)
