ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Photographed at my home, Denhams Beach, New South Wales, Australia,
enjoying a drink from the Butterfly Bush, Buddleja davidii.

Caper White Butterfly : Belenois java
The Caper White lives mainly west of the Great Dividing Range, of eastern Australia, where it feeds on caper
shrubs, but is sometimes blown towards the coast while on its northward migration in about November.

Adult Caper White Butterflies are mostly white with black margins to their upper wings and yellow-orange,
black and white underwings. They have a wing span of 5.5 to 6cms.

The caterpillars are dark brown to olive green with white and yellow dots and are associated with caper plants
that grow in the northern parts of inland New South Wales and in Queensland.

Caper White Butterflies live in urban areas, forests and woodlands.
