The Striped Blue Crow butterfly posed for me for over 3 minutes and so I was able to take photographs and do videos.
The butterfly is medium-sized and uncommon. I had not seen it for the past 3 years in Yio Chu Kang but saw this species for 1 morning last month and 2 consecutive days this month.
When the male folds his wings, the iridescent blue forewing attracts attention. See video:

The female has only brown wings on the upper and lower surfaces
