I feel that your flash used has been too harsh in some of the shots, and colours and details on the butterflies have been washed out.

Good attempts to ID these forest species. :thumbsup: However there are some which are not as you've ID'ed them.
#1 - #7 are ok.
#8, #9 & #10 are shots of the female Malay Baron.
#11 is a Lesser Dart.
#12 is ok.
#13 is a Fluffy Tit.
#14 - #17 are ok.
#18 is a Purple Duke (Eulaceura osteria kumana).
#19 & #20 are correct.

Garion said:Great series Simon, well taken and good exposure. I like the fact that you took the time and effort to source for each species' ID, and label each picture, good effort on your part! :thumbsup: I like the Branded Imperial picture the most, minor nit is that the DOF is not enough, hence the 'tails' of the butt not in focus.
Well done, keep shooting.
skyflash said:Nice series. I almost stepped into a monitor lizard on Saturday on the same trail. I usually "tail" behind group so that can observe the scared butterflies and wait for them to settle down.
breetai78 said:Hi Simsong, were you one of the group of photographers that I saw on Sunday by on the trail by the side of Singapore Island Club at 11am?
A few of them use SLR-type cameras. I was in the bunch of trekkers carry big packs training for our mountain trip. I was carrying a trekking pole.
skyflash said:They usually locate near the water, I think. So far, I have not encountered any deep into the trail. Instead, squirrels and monkeys.
On Saturday, there are troops and troops of students (on hiking trip?) from Macritchie Nature Trail to Bt timah. They caused quite some disturbance, but hungry butterflies ignore them.
