Inscribed as the first and only Tropical Botanic Garden on UNESCO's World Heritage list, the Singapore Botanic Gardens is home to a rich variety of tropical trees, shrubs and vines.  We shall explore primarily the Herb Garden and also the edge of the Evolution Garden to look for a variety of butterfly species. Past visits have yielded sightings of the Rustic, oft thought as a forest species.  But with the presence of its host plant in the garden, the Rustic is fairly easily seen here.  Other butterflies usually encountered on good sunny days include Leopard, Plain Tiger, Cycad Blue, Common Palmfly, Painted Jezebel, Ciliate Blue, Chocolate Pansy, Common Mormon.  Less common sightings are Common Rose, Common Birdwing, Tailed Jay, Hoary Palmer.
