Just come back from a week on Magnetic Island. The island is 8 km off the coast from Townsville in Queensland. It’s about the same distance for the equator as Mexico City.
This butterfly is a female Blue Tiger (Tirumala hamata ) which is common in Queensland – but that little bit of information is less important that the fact that it’s a cracking beast!
I’ll be posting more shots from Magnetic Island for the next week or so to show more of the island!
You can find more marco shots at Marco Monday.
You can see the most recent post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention link on the RHS of the screen.
Enjoy the close ups!
