Portrait of Patience

A couple of days ago, Bryan supplied us a grand photo of the underwing of the Common Imperial Blue Butterfly (  https://kingparrotcreekenvironmentgroup.wordpress.com/2016/12/28/so-whats-bugging-you/ ). I had no hesitation in setting Bryan the task of obtaining a photo of the same butterfly with open wings. A difficult task as they open their wings for a portion of a second to flash the blue sheen within.

A man of patience, Bryan has produced this great portrait to match his earlier effort. About the size of a ten cent piece I’m sure you will agree the C.I.B. is one of Victoria’s prettiest butterflies.

Well done Bryan-and if anyone has interesting observations/photos from the Flowerdale environment that they would like to share, please send them in by using the “Leave a Reply” box at the end of this post.
