Great to have a February record, thanks Mike! This is a female. Also, just confirming that this image was taken in suburbia?

Taken in the backyard when I was looking for chequered coppers (some of them are flying today despite the wind). The fiery copper was busy feeding and it was 5-10 minutes before it opened its wings. It (or another one) was there two hours later.
