Up close and personal
Black Tipped Butterfly on damp cement floor Zone C
Skink on 'Belian' plank.
In between work I noticed two wildlife close by - a butterfly and a skink. I decided to get close and personal with them when I took a brief rest from work later. The Black Tipped Archduke ( Lexias dirtea merguia) was flying low and moved close to the ground. When it rested on the damp and littered old cement floor close to where I rested, it gave me a rare opportunity to get as many pictures I wanted. The butterfly was in its best form and colours. On moving to another spot for another brief rest I chanced upon a skink that looked curiously at me. The skink seemed to be motionless and thus enabled me to get sharper images of it and for stock photography.
