    This unfortunately named butterfly is quite beautiful, with the ornate edging of its wings. Bruiser spotted it, this morning, resting on the underside of one of our kentia palm's fronds. Was able to get one pic of it but it was enough to be able to ID it. Found its name is the Varied or Common Eggfly. Poor thing. :whistle:

    Do not know if this is the Common Eggfly or the Varied Eggfly. :blush2:

    A very striking butterfly, looks like the colours on the top of the wing were even more vivid. Very delicate little creatures, they are lovely to watch. If they hang around long enough for it .

    That white stripe looks like a splash of light, doesn't it, Dawn?? I thought it was until I realised that there was no sun on our front patio at the time & also saw it on the butterfly ID pics. :blush: :roll: :D
