Common (Black) Jezebel, Delias nigrina, a newcomer to my garden on March 1st 2011,
this beauty returned several times through the following weeks to drink from the Buddleja.

I also discovered she is partial to some Callistemon and for the first time was able to capture

her partly open wings, showing the contrast.

Jezebel’s Wings

Photographed at Batemans Bay, on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia.

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.

  • Thanks Amanda ! I had not seen them before this year and saw three together yesterday, which was a surprise, as I thought it was getting a bit cool for them.
