Open Wings Great Eggfly - Hypolimnas bolina by 


Great Eggfly – Hypolimnas bolina (female)

The Great Eggfly (Hypolimnas bolina), also called the Blue Moon Butterfly in New Zealand or Common Eggfly, is a species of nymphalid butterfly.
Hypolimnas bolina is a black-bodied butterfly with a wingspan of about 70–85 millimetres (2.8–3.3 in). The species has a high degree of sexual dimorphism. The female is mimetic with multiple morphs.
The upper side of the wings of the female is a brownish black and does not have any spots like those of the male. The edges bear white markings which are similar to those of the Common Indian Crow.

My greatest passion in photography is to capture the wonderful Butterfly. I hope you will enjoy my photos of Butterflies as much I do to watch them and to catch their beauty with my photographs. My camera is a Canon EOS 350D with a Canon Close-Up lens 250D. Thank you so much for your visit, the kind comments, the great support and the Love for Butterflies!
Butterfly Kisses, Johanna
