Lacewing

Back from a few days away. Will catch up with commenting tomorrow. In the meantime, I took this shot a few days ago when this beautiful Orange Lacewing (Cethosia penthesilea) butterfly settled on the ground near my foot. This butterfly is native to Australia and the pattern on the underside of its wings is completely different from the upperside; both are equally beautiful, I think. If you click on the tag 'lacewing butterfly' you'll see a couple of photos I uploaded on another occasion that show the other side of the wings.
Lovely detail and colour.

Great detail - what a beauty! I looked at the other shots - interesting how the differences between the topsides and undersides of butterfly wings are often so very marked.

@cjwhite Thanks, Carolyn. I mentally dedicate all my butterfly shots to you. Did you check out the tag I mentioned above? It shows this butterfly as it is on the outside of its wings; quite different.
