Common Jezebel

Delias nigrina


Also known as Black Jezebel. Not sure if this is a male or female as I was unable to get a photo with the wings open. All I originally saw was a butterfly with white on the tops of the wings flying around. It landed and folded its wings up to reveal this gorgeous underside. "The upper sides of the male adult butterflies are white with black tips containing white spots on the forewings, and narrow black margins around the hindwings. The females on top are grey with wide black edges, which contain white spots near the forewing tips." (Butterfly House: )


Flying around the walking track before landing on the leaves at Bunya Mountain National Park.
