A Plane In My Garden


It's always lovely to see butterflies visiting our garden.
Here are a couple of recent visitors. The top one is a 'White Banded Plane' butterfly. They get their name by the way they glide around (like a plane).


This next one is a female 'Orchard Swallowtail' butterfly.
Their caterpillars feed on citrus leaves - they are welcome in our orchard (they don't eat much anyway).
One of the largest butterflies to grace Queensland gardens.

Cheerio for now,
I hope you've enjoyed looking at today's post.
