Author's notes

From first to third photo is around 50 secs in which time the butterfly moved from the grass to the shrub - when I looked at the photos on my laptop, it looks like she was going to lay an egg and might have laid it on the Leafy Bossiaea (there is a blurred green spot on a twig). While she was the only one on the bush overall this was the most common butterfly on Mt Aggie.

This species uses Poa grass as their larval food plant, nice record. Mt Aggie is a good spot for Silver Xenica!
