Pick-Me-A-Posy

Finally after that many years, I’ve come across the second Pygmy Posy in the field.  The first that I saw at Upper Seletar Reservoir was tattered and worn.  In spite of that, the little fella didn’t hang around after being disturbed and I didn’t get a record shot.

This time however, this particularly pristine and friendly Pygmy Posy which looked like it had just come out into the world from its cocoon hung around docilely around the same plant where I’d first seen my first Pygmy.

[Afternote: This turned out to be a very small Common Posy posing as a Pygmy Posy… oh well…To understand the difference between the two, check out the thread here: http://www.butterflycircle.com/forums/showthread.php?p=110445#post110445

After Afternote: This is actually a female Pygmy Posy, not a very small Common Posy as previously thought… who would’ve known!?!?].

    Beautiful! Pygmy or Common!

    Sometimes, as in this case, posers can be just as beautiful. Good one, as always.
