Common eggfly

By ColleenA
A common butterfly in Northern and Eastern Australia. They always rest with their wings open and flat. They look completely different with their wings closed.

V1 shows her with her wings closed...

Good to see both positions - the fact butterflies look so different open or closed makes ID so difficult.

She's very lovely, Colleen, and quite different with the wings closed, looks like they're two different species. Two beautiful captures here 👍

Isn't it interesting how the wings of butterflys are different on each side. Pam
