Butterfly (Callicore texa)

This wonderful spot near the disused original ranger station at the reserve was a fantastic spot for insects and I saw 2 of my favourite butterflies there. Both butterflies were in the area for a very long time, but rarely settled on natural surfaces. They also rarely settled with wings open, so it was a great delight to actually manage a photo with wings open. I spent over an hour in this area (between 2 periods), much of it with them.
