Rare Red-Eyed Flat/ Ornate Dusk Flat

Chaetocneme Denitza


Skipper Butterfly


Habitat was open (horse) paddocks, adjacent to heavily forested creek .


I spotted this stunning Butterfly at 5:20pm . It was resting on a Banana tree leaf. It almost glowed in the late afternoon light. I have certainly never seen one before and knew it was something special.
