Butterflies booming in south-east Queensland - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
Yes, my daughter (still on school holidays) has taken to ringing me daily at work to tell me the large number of pretty blue (and one or two orange, apparently) butterflies in our back yard. I haven't actually seen them there myself, although while driving around I have caught sight of a flash of blue.
We normally get only the most basic black and white type, which I have posted pictures of before. I did, however, some years ago, get a nice shot of a slightly more exotic one. I am not sure why there should be a sudden burst of prettier ones.
