Blue butterfly in Penang, Malaysia

I haven't had any time for birding on this current road trip, but today (just hours before heading home tomorrow morning) I had a chance to revisit the Botanical Gardens here in Penang, Malaysia. I did hear and see lots of birds at a distance, but the only good look at a flying creature came when this amazing 6-inch-wide butterfly swooped and whirled over a pond up a side trail in the forest. In the same area there was a group of Leaf Monkeys high in the leafy branches, and they sometimes "flew" from branch to branch.
