    Hi Walad,

    Welcome to the CiC forums from me.

    Two very nice photos there, a great start.

    It seems Singapore specialises in butterflies with decoy markings so predators (and me) get confused which way they're facing (and hence likely to fly).

    I initially thought it a pair mating, but I see no legs.

    I don't think I've ever seen such examples before, reminds me of aeroplanes with forward swept wings.

    Cheers,

    I, too, was confused by that first picture. It is a beautiful shot, though, both the butterfly and the background.
