Author's notes

Suzi, I'm unsure if this is a male or female, but perhaps you can tell. Couldn't get a photo with wings open.

Great photo! This one looks like a male.

Thanks Suzi, was a huge thrill to get a photo of this guy, one of my target species for the day on a climb to the summit of Mt Gingera.

Yes, they are a stunning little butterfly. Sounds like a great walk. What other highland butterfly species did you encounter?

Seemed to be Silver Xenica everywhere, a few Common Brown, the Australian Painted Lady, and another species I'll upload tonight, which I'm not sure of.
