Scarlet Jezebel

Delias argenthona

Notes:

I am starting to think of the Scarlet Jezebel as our 'Christmas butterfly'. Not only does it feed on mistletoe, but it turns up in our backyard at Christmas! I took a very similar shot in the same location (acacia tree in our yard) at the same time last year. Merry Christmas everyone! : )
