Pulau Ubin – Butterfly Hill

17 January 2010
Made a mini adventure to Pulau Ubin to visit the Butterfly Hill. Had been hearing alot about it and finally had a chance to check it out! 🙂 Its just a short walk from the jetty if you’re going from the ferry terminal at Changi Village. Bum boat ride costs $2.00 one-way, and Changi Village sells very cheap bottles of mineral water!

    From the markings on the Grass Yellow on the right, I'd say that these two are Three Spot Grass Yellows (Eurema blanda snelleni).
