Butterflies at Cranbourne Botanical Gardens

While exploring these gardens I saw a beautiful butterfly I’d not seen before, so welcome any comments about what the name might be 🙂 I thought it was gorgeous and beautifully marked and coloured, don’t you?

And then I saw this Painted Lady which is a fairly common species here in Australia but still lovely to look at. It had made itself at home on the paper daisy. I love its furry look on its body.
