Had a lovely surprise in the garden, this afternoon. Spotted a Australian Admiral aka Yellow Admiral (kahukowhai in Maori, New Zealand). I knew I’d seen this type here before, but not a living specimen. I blogged about finding a dead one on my car bonnet one morn. 

Thanks for looking.

    A lovely butterfly. Lot of colouration under its wings. Would be nice to see it flitting from flower to flower
