My 101 post. Hope you all like it. Thanks for viewing.

Hairstreak or rapala sp? Some helps would be good.

I found this web with ref to its ID: Remelana jangala (Chocolate Royal)

Thanks to Peter. Again thanks to Mike for helping also.

Taken during my hike to Melawati Hill. How i wish to have more dept for this take. Flash fired for better exposure as it rested within the densed bush. This is the first time i encounter a hairstreak, i found its 'tail' were moving up and down while it rest. Very fasinating.

Hi Kean

I think one of the Rapala sp. ?? possibly Rapala manea.
Also known as Slate Flash.

A Lycaenid.

Several Rapala sps. are found in Malaysia.

Rgds Mike.

Hi Kean,
I think Mike is right, certainly a Rapala species. Reminds me of good times in Borneo. Thanks for posting.

Hello Kean,
clearly, this isn't a Rapala species. It is
- Remelana jangala
- family: Lycaenidae
Wing underside patterns of Rapala look quite different.
A nice and brilliant picture which makes identification very easy.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Kean,
You've got some very fine captures in your gallery which I've overlooked! This is a superb capture of a beautiful Hairstreak. I like the composition and the details are pretty sharp and colours beautiful. Well Done!
Many thanks, Ulla
