A pair of mating Common Four-Rings (Ypthima huebneri) spotted at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park, Singapore, on 19 July, 2020. The Ring butterflies were out in force on that day: lots of them spotted all along the path during our walk.

@sohkamyung Agree! Sometimes people come across as too harsh (I'm sure they mostly don't mean it), and it will sting sometimes, but I am okay with that. There are all kinds of people in the world. I almost always learn something from the interaction.

@sohkamyung It probably is a Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta). I am waiting for the good people of iNaturalist to come scold me for misidentifying it. ;-)

@pgtips91 Thank you!

I see monarch pictures in your profile. I didn't know that they can be found in NZ! Do they migrate somewhere, like they do between North America and Mexico?

Have you read Anurag Agrawal's book, "Monarchs and Milkweed"?

I can't recall if Agrawal mentions NZ monarchs in the book. But the book is quite packed, and I might certainly have forgotten things.

@sohkamyung Can't say I have mastered it either. Now off we go practice! πŸ™ƒ

If you point your camera long enough at a perched bird, you might tick it off into flying, and if you are lucky, you might get a picture of the bird's graceful flight.

@youcantoo Fun. Enjoy your new toys! That Irix looks really interesting. πŸ™‚

I have a Sigma 150-500mm Pentax K mount lens. I rarely take it outside these days though. The 55-300mm lens I have is far more compact and has some weather sealing, and is right for walkabouts...

We saw proboscis monkeys in the wild!

In Bako National Park, Sarawak, Malaysia, back in December 2018.

@mpmilestogo I have been to Hanoi and I loved it there, so I am very glad to see those numbers. Vietnamese are a resilient people and if they can't overcome this no one else can.

(I am not a fan of the single party rule and what it entails though.)

@mpmilestogo Vietnam seems to be doing pretty well! ❀️
