Seems December had about no posts in Butterflies, Moths & Larva; so until traffic picks up, I'll just open this for the new year. We can always return to monthly designations at our leisure.

We came from here:

Nice to see species from other parts of the world, especially those not even the usual fare in butterfly houses...

@frostweed Josephine yes on top of the first photograph was the name, Common Grass Blue. Pretty little thing isn't it?

Lepidoptera order; Lycaenida family and labradus species. All something I need to quote from https://australianmuseum.net.a... as I'm totally ignorant when it comes to butterflies; apart from thinking how beautiful they are.
