[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Spindasis syama terana (Club/Black Banded Silverline) The Club Silverline is one of two species of the genus Spindasis to be found in Singapore. Of the two, the other being the Long-Banded Silverline (Spindasis lohita senama), the Club Silverline is much rarer. It is rarely encountered but when observed, it is usually on a bright sunny day as it flies rapidly amongst grassy undergrowth. The species has also been observed at Pulau Tekong. The main characteristics separating the Club Silverline from the Long-Banded Silverline are the club-shaped basal streak on the underside of the forewing and the mainly black edging of the silver streaks as compared to the reddish brown of the Long-Banded Silverline. The species has two pairs of white-tipped tails and an orange tornal area on the hindwings.

Bonjour Leo,
Excellent cliché d'un papillon assez particulier.
Belle composition d'image et netteté impécable du sujet. les couleurs sont superbes.
Merci du partage

WELL COMPOSED SHOT. THE BUTTERFLY LOOKS BEAUTIFUL IN THE BLURRED GREEN BACKGROUND.THE SHARPNESS OF THE PICTURE IS GOOD AND THE LEAF GIVES NICE EFFECT TO THE PICTURE.

I really wish we'd seen this in Singapore, it is so beautiful, amazing pattern on wings and abdomen! You've captured this butterfly really well, so sharp against the blurred background. A very nice composition!

What a beautiful butterfly, Leo.
I love its markings. Excellent focus and light.
Great composition with its downward diagonal pose.
I posted a Gray Hairstreak last week that has the same characteristics: some thin tail-like appendages and an orange spot on the "wrong" end to confuse predators. Very interesting.
TFS. : )
