kindly sat long enough for a few shots. Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia.

    Nice shot Trish. You rarely see photos of butterflies from this angle. I like the feelers & the interesting head.

  • Thanks so much Michael !
    It is an interesting head, the butterfly was quite accommodating, staying on the one bloom for a while, allowing me to get several shots :)
