Happy to spot this Plain Nawab (Polyura hebe) while walking the Rail Corridor next to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Singapore, on 3 May 2021. I saw it when it chased another butterfly away before perching on this leaf. I think it was earlier attacked by a bird, judging from the torn hindwing.

The Plain Nawab is a common butterfly, but I last spotted it two years ago.

An Ornate Coraltail (Ceriagrion cerinorubellum) I saw perched on an unfolding fern frond. I thought it would make for an interesting photo op. ๐Ÿ™‚ Spotted at the Rail Corridor, next to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Singapore, on 3 May 2021.

The Ornate Coraltail is a common, small, damselfly.

Had a lovely encounter with this 'Boxer' (Flower) Mantis, probably genus Astyliasula, at Dairy Farm Nature Park, Singapore, on 2 May 2021. It wasn't intimidated by us taking photos of it. Instead, it flew on to us and started climbing over us, while 'boxing' its arms. :-)

A Great Helen (Papilio iswara) spotted behind the Wallace Education Centre at Dairy Farm Nature Park, Singapore, on 2 May 2021. Might have taken more photos of it, but a male Common Mormon came along and chased it away from the area. :-)

The Great Helen is a large butterfly, and is moderately rare locally.

Male Eastern Towhee, Louisville, Kentucky 11/29/2020

These birds are often found on the ground scratching in the leaves to uncover bugs to eat. Sometimes they fly to a branch 6-10 feet off the ground to sing.

@thimblefolio Nice. Yeah, filling in the cells on the wings is complicated. ๐Ÿ™‚

BTW, if you need more photo references, you are welcome to use my photos, which I post here on Mastodon, if you want.

A Scarlet Flash (Rapala dieneces) spotted at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park, Singapore, on 18 April 2021.

We were all chasing after the locally rarer Chocolate Albatross (Appias lyncida) butterfly, but I didn't get a shot of it. Ah well, maybe next time. :-)

This was perched near this tree, possibly even on the same post, but the moment I snapped the shutter, it flew up to a nearby roof. So I tried to get a decent angle on it, and was about to walk away when it flew back to the tree, landing on this post, grooming itself for a few moments, and then stopping to look around.

Went to Upper Seletar Reservoir Park, Singapore, today, 18 April 2021. We passed by a truck parked by the side of the road with fertilizer in the back and spotted this Five-bar Swordtail (Graphium antiphates) happily feeding from it.

The Five-bar Swordtail is a fast flier, and it took a while before I managed to get a shot of it before it flew off again.

Bird for Wednesday. This one is a Pelican, I think it is a Brown Pelican- possibly Eastern variety but I'm not certain about that.

The photo ref I used for this study is from Pexels. Painted it using Krita again with a more oil paint/pastel / loose-ish approach I guess.
