Hello Kevin,
thank you for your nice collection of Korean butterflies. All the single pictures of the collage are excellent. I think that Arschnia burejana is new on TN.
The species shown in picture #01 is - Argyronome laodice -.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Kevin,
This is superb x 12!
Marvellous to be able to see a sample of the butterfly life of S. Korea so well presented with every shot of high technical quality.
The first one is definitely not A. paphia, but I doubt if is A. laodice. I think it is a female A. anadyomene.
Well done Kevin, and thanks for this great post!
Best wishes, Ivan

Hello Kevin
Wonderful collage of South Korean Butterflies,
Superb work my friend.


Hi Kevin,
a wonderful collection, artistically well presented, very well selected, and very well informing. Valuable contribution that shows the interesting mixture of two zoogeographical regions in a perfect way: palaearctic species, also well known from Europe, coming together with some indo-malaian ones. Korea shows a great biodiversity. Thank you for this valuable contribution!
With best regards,

Excellent collage Kevin, a very diverse collection of very nice captures from Korea.
Did you live there at one time?
Very well done!

HI Kevin,
your collage is wonderful, I love every single of your butterflies. Some of them we also have here in Germany. The top row and X + XI.
Together it's a beautiful collage, thanks and greetings

Hi Kevin

Just a quick one today.
Well...i'm quite surprised that a decent number of them look very much alike the ones we have here :)
It's a great collage - full of vibrant colors and excellent sharp details.
I also love the wonderful poses in which you captured them, giving us some great angles for those impressive wings.

Bravo and TFS
