[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This pair of Painted Jezebel were found at my home in Bangkok. Color contrast of underside wings are very attractive.

Family: Pieridae
Subfamily: Pierinae
Species: Delias hyparete
Common Name: Painted Jezebel

Wingspan: about 7–8cm.

Painted Jezebel flies all day and even at dusk. It's a slow flyer and often visit flowering plant for nectar.

Wings are mainly white, hindwing have yellow and red patterns on the underside. Black veins are more conspicuous in females.

Their brightly coloured underside serves as a warning pattern to predatory animals. Their weak fllight further advertises their unpleasant taste.

Habitat: Forests and urban areas, normally seen flying high in the tree tops.

Lindas borboletas. Excelente momento. Muito boa macro. Cores, composição e nitidez.

Beautiful butterflies. Excellent moment. Very good macro. Colors, composition and clearness.

¤ý¥ý¥Í, §A©çÄ᪺½¹½º¦nº}«G, §Ú³ßÅw,

Beautifull photograph ! These little Lepidopterans lay their eggs on a common Epiphyte here in Australia known as the "Mistletoe" (Amyema spp), which the Larvae then feed on. Unfortunately there are not enough of these butterflies at present to make a decent impact on this plant, which can be a severe pest.Hopefully their numbers will increase as they are not only beautifull but deadly on mistletoe.

Hi Jitti,
great colors at an interesting "scene". It's a perfect example of decisive moment.

Hello JT,
Two colourful guys indeed!
I love the composition, and the colours in this image are so pleasant, it is like the background is made for the butterflies... or is it the other way around?
Super sharpness and details an well done!
