Other Common Names
According to the books etc, this is supposed to be a very common species. It's found in parks, reserves, roadsides, in fact practically everywhere. So far I've only seen a few of them, and no more than one or two on any particular day. They tend to flutter about without ever landing for long. The only times I've been able to get any worthwhile pictures of them, so far, were during cloudy periods. If the sun isn't out, they tend to fly only a short distance when disturbed, before setting low down on the vegetation.
