This is one of my favourite quotes: There are a thousand photos within ten minutes of home.
And this image is an example of that quote. I came across this beauty no more than half a dozen steps from my back door.
The photo below is of a Common Brown Butterfly (Heteronympha merope) which is native to Australia. By late summer, only females are alive, and, as it is now autumn, it appears this may be a female.
