Yellow Admiral

Vanessa itea


This is a butterfly I spotted while on a walk today. It has since been identified by a helpful commenter as a Yellow Admiral, which are common throughout Australia and New Zealand.


Yellow Admirals are usually found in relatively damp areas of vegetation, such as the banks of rivers and creeks, gullies, glens and suburban gardens.
