Author's notes

Thanks to Marcus Leach for sighting these two females. There were several of the bushes seen in the images that were in flower at the junction of ANBG Sections 203 and 204. Two females were flying rapidly from flower to flower among the bushes and then left the area. Difficult to get in-focus images as they were very active.
