Although widespread across this land, I only get to see them occasionally. Usually they are just passing through the garden. Their striking pattern certainly does make them worthwhile sight.

The first photo was taken after some rain and the ground was wet; the butterfly was taking a rest or possibly drinking from the moist soil. In the last photo the butterfly rested itself nicely beside a Leopard Orchid. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get both in focus as the butterfly didn't stay around long enough for me.
