Cassia Butterfly

I saw a number of these butterflies around Cairns, but they're very strong fliers and they didn't seem interested in landing. However I had a bit of luck on the first morning of my second trip to Cairns. Early in the morning I found a specimen resting at the side of the road. When disturbed, he flew around rapidly and came to rest in another spot in the same area. I came to the conclusion that it was a bit early for him, and he wouldn't really get going until he'd had another couple of cups of coffee. Before he had the chance to get his caffeine fix, I was able to get a few photos.
