Zebra crossing

By annettep38  
Many thanks for all your kind comments regarding the lotus flower. hope my internet is a bit more stable tonight. Today we went to see the rice paddies so not much in the way of critters. But I'll think of something as v2Smile

here is one big zebra butterfly, it was a frame filler.
Please, can those who know more than me find an ID?
no 2 took ten minutes to upload Sad
just a street scene. on almost any corner in rural Kedah or Perlis there is a small business, selling fruit or drinks or nasi lemak or some other fast food.. only, this is 100% homemade and delicious. And i often wonder how they make a living!

Gorgeous capture, Annette Smile

I was thinking some sort of glassy tiger or a mormon. I haven't found it yet in my Singapore butterfly guides. Still looking...


PS Hopefully Karen can ID this before me!

Excellent butterfly shot at V 1, Annette: and V 2 is an interesting street corner image.
Have also viewed V 3 but can't see any change from V 2 but there again my eyesight is not what it was.
PS. On going back for a further look, V 3 has now disappeared........R.

I think it's this one, Annette, Graphium macareus perakensis or The Lesser Zebra.
Andrew kindly messaged me for the ID.

superb image of the butterfly.Looks like Pamelajean has identified it.
The street scene depicts a general feeling of chaos.
I'll bet you can get a few good candid shots.

An interesting creature in V1 and a very good slice of life bit of photojournalism in V2.

Cracking butterfly Annette although i have to say I have my doubts about the ID from Pamelajean - hers seems to have white spots on the edge of the wings while yours has black. having said that I can't do any better so I ought to shut up!

What a beautiful zerba longwing butterfly Annette, you've captured its wing markings and patterns in such intricate detail. Such a shame it's got a piece missing from its wingSad
