              Thanks you all for the kind comments , I am glad find it enjoyable!!

              pmbillyk ,

              It is one of their strategy for survival , it resemble the head. When the butterfly landed it shuffle its hind wings, attracting predators' attention to its tail instead of its head. Going by the numbers I encountered with missing tails and part of hind wing, I think the strategy works well.

              Cheers!

                  Thanks Noordin !

                  Actually it is quite common in the coastal scrub land of west Malaysia.

                  Most people did not encounter or notice it , could be due to its small size and it is a high speed flyer.

                  Cheers!
