A Photo A Day - No. 257

Delias aganippe (Donovan)
Common Names: wood white butterfly, redspotted jezebel, spotted jezebel.
The 'wood white' name comes from the upperside colouring on the wings,
as seen on this link
Look at the 'jezebel' colours underneath.
This one was blown into the shadehouse by today's strong wind
It must have been looking for my Quandong Trees
as these are a favourite of this butterfly!
