Common Tit

I found me a Common Tit while out photographing the Stock-billed Kingfisher. This small species is rather common in Singapore. This butterfly can be encountered in the mangrove area like Sungei Buloh to the urban jungle.

Hi again,
Just got round to checking your butterfly collection. Looks like you nailed some of the rarer species around too! This one's a Common Tit. The Narrow Spark resembles this species, but has a white tipped filamentous tail. The Common Tit, on the other hand, has two pairs of thicker tails, and this is what you've shot.

Thanks! I have since corrected the post.
