Metallic blue wings, wingspan of 100 - 130mm. This butterfly is one of the most easy to recognise in the Queensland tropics & is also it's tourism symbol. Its is commonly found from Mackay north, but appears more prevalent in upland rainforest areas. These butterflies can see something blue from 30 metres away! This is definately one of my favourite spottings, I cant believe I finally got some shots of this beautiful butterfly.
I spotted this beauty in Cape Hillsborough N.P.
