Common Eggfly Butterfly sitting in my garden.
This butterfly can be rather agressive and dive bombs you. Today after heavy showers he was happy to sit. I was able to get up really close, I could even touch him. He didn’t mind at all.

Wonderful colorful capture Gabrielle
Hi there Larry, thanks buddy! :) Yes I finally got on the right side of him to get the blue spots. Sometimes when the light isn’t right, the blue just goes out to white.

Wonderful capture,Gabe!! This butterfly has so beautiful colors….
Hi there Paul, thanks buddy! :) Really appreciate it! :)
Gorgeous capture Gabe
Hi Kathy, would you believe that this pest of a butterfly has been attacking me for weeks, I couldn’t even come near the pear tree without being bombed. Hehehehe! Yes it’s quite funny to be bombed by a butterfly! At least it doesn’t have claws like a bird. Today after our heavy showers, I think it was trying to dry out and warm up. It’s really pretty with the blue spots.
Too beautiful to be called Common! Gorgeous shot my friend, excellent colors!
Hi Tina, how are you buddy? Thanks so much for the lovely comment on my butterfly. Yes I don’t know why they call him common either. His spots are just gorgeous but you have to have the light right otherwise the spots go to white in the wrong angle.
Gorgeous capture. I have never seen one of these.
Hi there Bunny, thank you so much! :) Yes I had only seen these butterflies now for the last two years. I must have planted a tree in the garden that they love. I’ve found them sitting on my Flowering Plum, Prunus Elvins and my Pear tree. They are a funny butterfly, the male dive bombs you. I read somewhere that they are agressive and fight other butterflies. We have witnessed this in the garden. Rather bizzare behaviour, sadly we couldn’t capture it on film as it was too difficult to film.
Lvely capture of this beautiful male Eggfly
Hi Robert, yes he’s rather pretty. I’ve found he’s also very aggresive some days and dive bombs me.
Hi Sylvia, thanks buddy! :)

Hey girlfriend, thank you! :) Yes how bout that, this butterfly has been dive bombing me for ages and after all the heavy rain we had, he sits like a puppy dog, I could even touch him and he didn’t move. I love butterflies that sit! :)
Great shot Gabe, such a pretty butterfly!
Hi Kerry, thank you my friend! :) Yes how bout that, he was happy to sit for a while, just what I love! :)
