It fluttered by. Common Diadem.

This is the male Common Diadem – Hypolimnas misippus. S0 common, in fact, that I have seen it a whole three times in five years and managed to photograph it twice!  So … not so common after all.

These shots were taken with two different cameras: the Canon and the Sony.

Shots 1 & 2 Sony Cybershot at full zoom.

Shots 3 & 4  Canon EOS normal setting on full Auto








  1. Great photos. I found things in each photo I like so I can’t say which camera takes a better photo. What the photos do show is the grand diversity in our world among different species and within those species. It is hard for me to grasp the idea that so many more species have gone extinct than exist today. I wonder what it would be like if all those species could be here at the same time as us, would we like it or hate it? Hugs
