That's not unusual, you might think, however I live in New Zealand where, right now, it's mid-Winter and quite cold. There were three butterflies, one white and two blues. All three were in beautiful condition so must have emerged from their chrysalis's at the start of our Winter.
It's not usual to see Monarch butterflies flying about at this time of year, as they cluster about in tall trees until Summer, however I don't think I've ever seen a white butterfly or a blue butterfly in Winter before. Nevertheless, there they were. All in pristine condition.
What a joy it was to see them and, as you can see, I took plenty of pictures despite not having my correct 'butterfly' lens with me.
