Today I saw one big butterfly which is quite awesome. Its upper part is black colour and part of the lower wing looks bright yellow. It is far away so that is all I can see. Any idea what type ? It is at a wild place.

it can be either common Mormon or banded swallowtail which is quite rare.

Moth or butterflies ? By the way, the other day, I noticed a tailed jay caterpillar on a White champaca tree leaf. so besides soursop, maybe they can feed on champaca leaves ? My neighbourhood got a lot of yellow champaca.

The caterpillar on a Portia or sea hibiscus tree. It is somewhere in Punggol.

Hairy caterpillar got an eye on the back. It can widen the eye when disturbed. Picture taken last month, I don't think I can find it anymore.

A red ladybird. This one looks different from the orange one.

yes, I'm a nature lover. :hysterical:/>
The pictures are from last year. I went fishing, along the way find some insects or plants, so I take pictures and keep in the computer.

Ladybirds fly around. It is quite hard to find them. When you want to find them, it is hard. When you are not looking for them, they appear.
Maybe can control aphids by other methods. Like using a toothbrush to brush on them. or detergent, controlling the fertilizer dosage. or use a jet of water to spray them off.
Small mantis may eat some aphids.
