Photoshoot session with Malay Lacewing (Cethosia hypsea hypsina)
Today's photoshoot session with the Malay Lacewing was not arranged.  No appointment made.  But was a pleasant surprise when I encountered it at the 'Sui-Mui' plant (Wrightia religiosa).  The dangling flowers of the Sui-Mui (Cantonese) are fragrant and are produced on daily basis.  There have been many occasions when I encountered it hovering around by the plant.  The variegated lace pattern on the underside of the wings are very attractive.  The upper side is bright orange and black.
