Hello friends in TN.

Interesting to see that this common archduke is sucking water at this river bank in Sarawak.

The Archdukes are a genus (Lexias) of tropical forest-dwelling butterflies that are common throughout Southeast Asia and Australasia. Members of the brush-footed butterfly family Nymphalidae, the genus is represented by about 17 species. Two very similar and coexisting genera are Tanaecia (the Viscounts and Earls) and Euthalia (the Barons and Counts), the latter previously including some Lexias species. The largest species reach a wingspan of ca. 10 cm (4 in).

Hi Jusni,

Another beautiful shot of this beautiful butterfly showing all it's beautiful pattern. Low how well the color match the pebbles. Excellent close up with wonderful details and texture. Even just the pebble background would have make a beautiful subject in itself.

Hi Jusni,
Probably the colors are just a touch oversaturated (on my monitor, and I rather mean thee colors of the pebbles), but the open-winged pose, sharpness, PoV and composition are top notch each! I'm very happy to see this, in your region common butterfly and learn about it from your photo and note. Thanks, and congrats for the pleasant shot!
Best wishes, László
