[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Caper White (Belenois java) is one of the most widespread species in Australia and can be found in about 80% of the continent, especially the north, and eastern thirds. It is a highly nomadic and migratory species whose movements are poorly understood. They fly year round and can even be numerous in some winters. In some spring times, millions of individuals migrate up or down the east coast and /or into the central arid regions.
I have found them in habitats ranging from rainforest margins on the coast to canegrass on the tops of sand dunes in the Simpson desert of central Australia.
Here, this male really wanted the nectar deep within this introduced pest plant Patersons Curse (Echium plantagineum).

This CAper is certainly 'getting into' this Echium isn't it.
Nicely composed pic with a good note.

Nicely composed, you got a little humor in it. I love the markings on the wings.

Hallo Chris
A special thanks for welcoming me to Trek Nature. I appreciate your visit and the critique you left me. I am sure Iíll enjoy every moment and that my knowledge about nature and everything involved will grow daily, especially if an old hand (I mean camera hand) like yours and others are going to tell me where my mistakes are. Although this ďItís in there somewhere!Ē is not your latest posting, I wanted to give my smiley to this specific one. I just love the colour purple and I when browsing your portfolio, I came across this lovely purple flower looking as if it is swallowing the butterfly. I am sure when the butterfly came out after the nectar sucking session it was tipsy. The butterflies colours are bright and the detail are good. I really like the fine hair on the flowers stem.
Kind regards
