Goldie River Butterfly

Chapter 27 continues.

Escape from Moresby.

Needed to get outside and about, so went for a wander along part of the Kokoda Track, good stuff, muddy, wet, hot, humid and did I say muddy?

But after having a swim in the Goldie River, I spotted this b'fly having a drink off someone's shirt.

Cute little guy.
what a beautiful butterfly

What a beauty....love his fluffy tummy. The walk and swim sound a great antidote to high-faluting-city-life. Except the mud bit. :)

@abhijit - the little pns is a cracker camera... there were three others out and about with the same beast!

@johnfalconer - Sorry John, can't help it... you want a shot of Taurama at some time?

@kjarn - pretty little thing indeed!

@agima - Thanks Mr Maunder.

@kazlamont - they do not like movement, freaks them out a little... so yeah, staying still is a good thing

A beauty with a small swallowtail. Super sharp where it counts.

Very pretty, much better than the spider! I'm still traumatized...
May 13th, 2013  
wonderful capture of a wonderful butterfly.
May 13th, 2013  
@rvwalker - I think it may be a Swallowtail. Not sure though.

@breigh - always prettier than a spider, sorry about the trauma.

@lynnb - sure did, a sweaty one!
May 14th, 2013  
At first glance his tongue looks like another leg. Great detail!
May 15th, 2013  
@l2lumom - I think he is missing two legs.... and yes, his proboscis does look leg like.
May 15th, 2013  
Cool eyes.
May 20th, 2013  
@squamloon - I like how they follow the lens... same with praying mantis
May 20th, 2013  
Cool! I've only had my macro lens for a few months, and haven't yet tried butterflies. Looking forward to it!
May 20th, 2013  
@squamloon - this was just macro setting on my pns. I do have some macro lens stuff of b'flies earlier on in my project.
