Hello friends in TN.

This is Striped Albatross perched on a coat button flower.

Appias libythea olferna (Striped Albatross)
The Striped Albatross gets its name from the male butterfly, which is white with prominent black veins on the underside. The female is dark dusted with yellow wing bases.

This species established itself in Malaysia about 50 years ago, due to the wildspread abundance of its food plant the Purple Cleome.


Thanks for viewing!

Hello Jusni
Nice macro taken with wonderful colors, clear BG and great details

Excelente fondo y bonitos colores pero (but) falta nitidez en el motivo.

Hi Jusni.
What a colourful and pleasant for look butterfly shot. I like precise exposure of the image and nice reproduction of a colouration of an insect as well as other butterfly's features. Main subject is isolated from splendid BG perfectly. Kind regards and TFS.
