Common Grass Blue Butterfly (Zizina labradus) - Horsnell Gully, South Australia by Dan & Emma Monceaux

Common Grass Blue Butterfly (Zizina labradus) - Horsnell Gully, South Australia by 


These sweet, tiny little butterflies were flitting among the weeds that lined the Coach Road trail. Between feeding sunning itself and climbing around curiously, I was able to get within a couple of centimetres for a few intimate shots.

Conservation and creativity are our two strongest passions. Our nature photography extends into online video at NatureScope . We’re also currently producing a documentary film called Cuttlefish Country . All purchases of our work will go directly towards the film’s production. The film is due for release in 2013.
