Wow. This is very beautiful. Aside from that, butterflies are very useful and important to the environment in plant pollination. The continuous life cycle of many plants depend on them. :)/>

I like the color of Malayan Eggfly, blue gloss on the the upper-side of its wings. I google some other pictures of it, the underside have dark brown color with white spots of it. And there are many of it Singapore.

Hi I am planting blood flower to attract butterflies but have concerns that the caterpillars will munch away my other plants. Any suggestions how I should deal with this potential problem?

butterfly are plant specific. The plant that attract them are Calotropis gigantea(giant snake weed), Asclepias curassavica(blood flower), cynanchum vine. They don't feed on other plant. Moth may be but not butterfly.

Hi Digitalgate,

fantastic pictures and evidence of butterflies loving your garden. Especially the birdwing caterpillars! Is your garden near forested area?

to Fireflyfly:
I find that lime butterflies are very common - any caterpillar appearing on my lime plant (8th floor)usually turns out to be lime butterfly. I saw that you had common mormon as well. How often do you find common mormon caterpillars in your garden, and do they lay the eggs on kumquat or do they prefer other kinds of citrus plants (e.g. pomelo)?
