Birdwings challenging targets on the wing
Townsville, not Cairns. Birdwings, not birds. What? Cairns Birdwing butterflies, that's what. Male in flight (one usable shot among hundreds of total failures) and at rest.
Larger, less colourful female.
Two of three caterpillars spotted on acacia leaves near the frustratingly flittery adults.
Nothing flittery about Velvet Slug. Saved this one from suicidal 'sprint' across the Town Common driveway.
But I declined the thankyou kiss.
