Meadow Argus Butterfly (Junonia villida) - Carrick Hill, South Australia by 

I encountered this solitary Meadow Argus in the garden by the Pear Arbor at Carrick Hill Estate in the Adelaide Hills. Quite a territorial character, this butterfly flew aggressively at several passing Monarch and Cabbage White butterflies who strayed across its ‘patch’.

    Well done, between sips of wine?

  • Ha, not quite… shot up there to check out the Lost Gardens of Adelaide exhibition. Drawings, photographs, paintings and blueprints or historical Adelaide, ’burbs and gardens since European settlement. Very interesting. The heat was oppressive and there was no wine being served ;)
