Glasswing Butterfly, Acraea andromacha, photographed at my home, Batemans Bay on the south
coast of New South Wales, Australia.

Another of those beauties that prefer the highest point of the Buddleja, rarely at an angle to obtain a shot
for positive identification.

On a prolonged visit, I was at last able to get a few “keepers”. Thank you all for viewing, I hope the images
give you as much pleasure as the captures have given me :)

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.
I am retired, beyond threescore years and ten.

    Yes, great shot through the wings Trish.

  • Michael, thank you !
    I wasn’t sure about this shot at first, but decided I liked the clear view through the left forewing while the right reflected the sun from it’s “glassy” surface.
