These are two butterflies from the same subfamily - Curetinae. One is found inland and the other in the mangrove. This is the Malayan Sunbeam, which I photographed some weeks back.
This here is the Sumatran Sunbeam which I photographed in a mangrove reserve on Monday. The species has distinctive red banded legs. It only is found in this single location. This photo is a little fuzzy as I was using a zoom lens instead of a macro lens. The butterfly was a little out of range to get a good 1:1 shot.
