Some Butterflies

Although Autumn is well advanced we are scoring a bit of an Indian Summer with maxima above 20 degrees (and no rain).  There are quite a few flowers around and the butterflies are taking advantage of this. I have used Butterflies of Australia by Michael Braby as my reference (but of course he isn't to be blamed if I have got things wrong).

This is a Common Grass Blue.  (Thanks Roger for the ID).

On the basis of "know thy enemy" here is a Cabbage White - for once not destroying our Brassica!

An Australian Painted Lady.

Finally a Meadow Argus.
