Taken two different individuals at sime this evening at 6pm. Care to comments. Do you know are they male or female?

Hi Abdul.....were these taken at the ranger station?
There seems to be a proliferation of Malay lacewings there.

It's a very pretty BF don't you agree?
Would love to see more of the body and legs in the first shot.
BG is a little busy though.

:cheers:

It seemes that #2 fits the description of the female. :p
No, that description is more for the Batik Lacewing (Cethosia biblis) which is found in Malaysia. There's no green form of the Malay Lacewing that I know of.
