Took a photo of this butterfly while suroy’ing in Bohol and then found “Butterflies of the Philippines” by Jade Badon when I returned to work. If I’m not mistaken it was a Great Eggfly (Hypolimnas bolina philippensis). Badon notes, “one of the reasons why this species is very variable is that it has many host plants.” (From Philippine Lepidoptera FB page).
Biked 44k/27m today in 2 hours and 42 minutes! Calling this Cubao-Mandaluyong-BGC-Pasig-Marikina-Cubao Ikot. Didn’t like the ride back north via CPG though. Gonna have to look for an alternative route. I’d rather zig-zag through neighborhoods than compete with motorcycles for spaces between buses and trucks.
Madaming libro dito sa balay ni Kuya Ditto. Not surprised kasi biologist siya. I got further educated about the sea urchins mama taught me how to eat by this amazing marine biologist. And check out the Matrix models on top of the book shelf alongside books by Sagan and Jared Diamond alongside Marvel graphic novels. Can I live here?
