I actually think this is a Clearwing Moth of some description, exactly which species I can't be sure as you're from the Phillipines, I know most of the UK species but not much about species from Asia, so you'd need to do some research of your own. One thing I can definitely tell you though is that it's not a butterfly Smile Just thought you'd like to know......Good find actually as in this country they're rarely seen. Well done!

Good angle! Ade is correct. It's a moth. I have seen some that look exactly the same in North Tailand.
Very good capture. IB

I find these comments interesting as in the post below (involving the same subject) where I labeled the pic as "moth", there were members who commented that it was not a moth but a butterfly
