Looking back at 2009

2009 has been a fun packed and exciting year.

The NSS Nature Forum is finally up, 2nd print of the butterfly guide is on the way and we have started on a few butterfly trail projects that will come into fruition next year.

Of course the part I enjoyed most is my trips to Fraser’s Hill, Gopeng, Maxwell, Thailand and Kota Kinabalu.  Some of the butterfly lifers I observed include :
- Elymnias esaca andersonii
Raub, Nov
- Zeuxidia aurelius aureliusUlu Yam, Selangor, Nov
- Danaus affinis malayanus - Kuala Selangor, Nov
- Coelites epiminthia (m) – Bunker Trail, Aug
