A sprinkle of rain and butterflies

The other day at long last we had a few light showers, but only enough to freshen things up and not nearly enough to affect water-levels in the creeks and our dam. But it does mean that there are now a few butterflies around - they tend to emerge a couple of days after rain. This is a male Cairns Birdwing on the Calliandra bush - the female Birdwing is Australia's largest and some are as big as your hand.
