I cant identify the species. But this butterfly appeared before me, then disappeared very fast. I try to find out where. There she was, among the bourgenvillea flowers... camouflaged among them. Please identify the species for me.
Thanks Jusni for giving the name of the species and also important notes.

Assalamualaikum Foozi. This is the Mottled Emigrant which is the rarest of the three Catopsilia species in Malaysia. The camouflage works well here among the white bougainvillea especially the markings on the wings and the texture of the flower are almost identical. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

hello Foozi,
This is a very nice shot of both the bougie and the butterfly.
I love the homogeneous colours against the blurred BG.
Great colours and composition.
Have a good WE,
