This antlion lacewing flew up from the grass as I walked through. It landed and then flew several times. Luckily I was able to keep an eye on it and get some photos once it settled. Two photos uploaded. Distoleon bistrigatus ID by Ken Harris via Bowerbird.
Sorry about the poor quality heavily cropped photos! During a quick visit to WHP yesterday afternoon I saw this butterfly flying around. After watching and following it for a while, it landed about six metres up a tree and I was finally able to get some distant photos. I have had a go at ID and I'm fairly sure it's a female Ogyris abrota (dark purple azure). There were quite a few patches of mistletoe in the area, which is the host plant for the caterpillars of this species. A rare butterfly and a lucky find!
I think it might be Campion sp., but I have never attempted an ID on a mantis fly before. ID assistance would be greatly appreciated. Three photos uploaded including face and top down view. Campion tenuistrigus ID by Ken Harris via BowerBird.
