Like my previous shot, this shot is also from Langkawi Island. This graceful, white butterfly is a Male Appias libythea. Because of good angular sunlight and bushes at a desirable distance from the subject (in background) i was able to get some good details on this little butterfly. Some lines from Wikipedia are as under:

Striped Albatross, Appias libythea is a small butterfly of the Family Pieridae, that is, the Yellows and Whites, which is found in India and Peninsular Malaysia.

Scientific classification
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda
Class: Insecta
Order: Lepidoptera
Family: Pieridae
Genus: Appias
Species: A. libythea
Binomial name
Appias libythea
Fabricius, 1775

Thanks for viewing,
