Parthenos sylvia philippenis The Brown Clipper
Class: Insecta
Order: Lepidoptera
Family: Nymphalidae
Country: Malaysia and the Philippines

The butterfly looks quite different depending on where it is from. The butterflies that we get from the Philippines are brown and cream in coloration. In comparison, the butterflies that we get from Malaysia are a bright blue or green color. They are still considered the same species, though the species from Malaysia is called a subspecies; Parthenos Sylvia lilacinus. The larvae of this butterfly feed on two different plants in the family Passifloraceae, Modecca sp. And Adenia palmata. They love to visit flowers and will sit quietly for photos.

Excellent information and a beautiful shot! The closer wing tip is a little soft. Have you tried any manipulation in photoshop? The body of the butterfly is very sharp.
