Australian (Greater) Eggfly

Australian (Greater) Eggfly
Hypolimnas bolina

This butterfly was difficult to photograph owing to the high contrast between the black and white wing areas. Slide film captures contrast reasonably well, but here the whites have burned out. Today's digital cameras would undoubtedly produce a better result.
