Fragile floaty friends. (▰˘◡˘▰)

Walking by the river is always eventful, bursting with flora and fauna of all kinds.
The warmth of these beautiful summer days have brought out many, many floating objects. One, including butterflies.

I met this little lady today.
A female Banks Brown butterfly a.k.a. Heteronympha banksii banksii 

She was particularly friendly, floating on over to me, posing for photos #model

Bank’s Brown butterflies normally inhabit open forests, rain forests and forested slopes on the ranges. Which makes sense, as the larvae feeds on various species of grasses. 

If you live in south east Queensland, eastern New South Wales and eastern half of Victoria, you’ll more than likely catch a glimpse of one of these friendly fellows at your local river, floating along and being models.

I hope I’m lucky enough to meet a few more floating creatures along my way.
I’ll keep you posted!
