Dark-edged Snow Flat
I didn't see this butterfly - I noticed the other photographers were taking pictures and that drew my attention.

Red Helen
I was happy to see a new to me kind of large butterfly. The day was a bit cooler than last year so not as many insects were out.
Species: Papilio helenus (Red Helen)

Red-Base Jezebel
When your 100mm lens gets close enough to really see a butterfly, it is really close to the butterfly. Often the butterfly just flies away well before you get that close. This individual was really patient.
Species: Delias pasithoe (redbase Jezebel)

Blue Tiger
At first I didn't realize there there were a variety of "Tiger"'s - Black with light colours. The reserve had a sign showing a few of the species - Ceylon Blue, Blue, Dark Blue, Glassy and more. I tried harder to take photos of each one I saw.
Species: Tirumala limniace (blue tiger)

Plain Tiger
I think there are dark spots on the hind wings here, but the hind wings are hidden.
Species: Danaus chrysippus (plain tiger)

Common Tiger
I saw four different kinds of "Tigers" today - characterized by the dark black stripes on either a light or orange background.
Species: Danaus genutia (common tiger)

Great Egg-fly In Bright Light
This is a somewhat shaky identification - I believe the white spots on the wings are either overwhelmed by the blue or just worn off. I have a poor photo of the underside of the wing - it better matches (but still worn) Great Egg-fly.

In this species the male and female don't look anything alike.

Species: Hypolimnas bolina (great eggfly)

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)
