Resting upon a leaf, of the star jasmine that runs itself rampant along one of our fences, was this brown-winged butterfly. It is a Common Australian Crow Butterfly (or Oleander Butterfly).
Common Australian Crow Butterfly rests on our star jasmine.
While not as colourful and boldly patterned as its showy cousins, and a much more common sight in our garden than some others, it is none the less beautiful. Fine and delicate with white spots that look like a painter has dabbed them on, oh so precisely!
It might be common but, like so many things, very beautiful too when one looks closely and with wonder.
Have a lovely weekend.
