[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I came across this Common Lascar by a small stream at a forest edge in the Plum Garden, Baiyun Hill this afternoon. It was the first time for me to spot this species.

The Common Lascar (Pantoporia hordonia) is a species of nymphalid butterfly found in tropical and subtropical Asia.
The Lascars are somewhat similar in pattern and wing shape to the Common Sailors, but the stripes and bands on the upperside wings are orange instead of white.
There are about 15-18 species in the genus Pantoporia, of which 5 are found in West Malaysia, the remainder being found in various other parts of the Oriental region, or on Papua New Guinea and surrounding areas.
Pantoporia hordonia is the most widespread member of the genus, being found from India and Sri Lanka to south China, Taiwan and the Philippines; and south through the Malay archipelago to Java and Lombok.
This butterfly is found in disturbed areas of primary rainforest, including in small clearings; and along forested riverbanks at elevations between sea level and about 300 metres.

Hello John,
Another beauty from China, reminds me of the Common Sailor with another coloration.
Nice diagonal composition, natural colors. Sharpness could be improved slightly, but not too much.
A beautiful butterfly-species.
