I've seen this butterfly every time I've been to Cairns, but they generally don't seem to settle at all. For a long time the only picture I had was a
poor example of a female, who was fluttering around a vine in the Cairns Botanical Gardens. As you can see, she was a bit too high up for me to be able to get a decent photo......
Fortunately, I had more luck in September 2008. I saw more of these butterflies than previously, and a couple of them even landed for me to get photos.
