Paris Peacock Feeding
This individual has had a rough life - he is missing parts of his wing. The green dots covering the wings really stand out in direct sunlight.
Species: Papilio paris (Paris peacock)

Purple Sapphire
These are small butterflies, but this particular one was very patient with me being close by. It has a beautiful purple dorsal side, but it didn't show it to me.
Species: Heliophorus epicles (purple sapphire)

White Dragontail
These were quite common in the day - we saw them in both locations, but they never stopped moving! Only late in the afternoon did they stop to feed, but they often kept beating their wings even when they standing on their legs.
Species: Lamproptera curius (White Dragontail)

Three-Spot Grass Yellow
Sometimes I took a dozen photos of an individual before it flew. This butterfly I have only a single photo of - and it was gone.
Species: Eurema blanda (three-spot grass yellow)

Lemon Pansy Underside
It's amazing to me how different the underside (ventral view, looking at the animals belly) is from the topside (dorsal, the animals back) of this species. I initially thought this was two species until I reviewed the photos and found I had a series of photos of the butterfly flapping it's wings.
Species: Junonia lemonias (lemon pansy)

Crimson Marsh Glider, Female
BC Dragonflies don't have a lot of sexual dimorphism that I have seen - sometimes one is 10% larger and the tail tip area is sometimes different, but otherwise similar. Crimson Marsh Gliders are quite different colours - Crimson (red) for the males, this brownish orange for the females.
Species: Trithemis aurora (crimson marsh glider, Crimson Dropwing)

Orange Dragonfly From Below
This Dragonfly is hard to identify. It might be a Russet Percher (recently emerged).

Changeable Lizard Male Breeding
This Lizard was really out in the open and larger than others I have seen of this species. He paused on the step and then was gone.
Species: Calotes versicolor (changeable lizard, Oriental garden lizard)

Two Skinks In Woodpile Hg
We saw a total of three skinks in this area. The suspicion is that it is mating time.
Species: Eumeces chinensis chinensis (Chinese Skink)
