There were a few Common Grass Yellow butterflies flitting from flower to flower of the Sphagneticola trilobata (synonym: Thelechitonia trilobata; common name: Rabbit's Paw, Trailing Daisy, Creeping Ox-eye; Family: Asteraceae/Compositae) in front of North Bridge Road's Funan Centre.

The groundcover is more commonly known by its synonym Wedelia trilobata. Anyway, it took me a while to capture these few photos. The proboscis (straw-like mouthpart) can be seen sticking into the florets at the center of the flower.
