Australian Admiral Butterfly

Just when I was thought that the only butterfly visitors to my garden were the meadow Argus along comes this fellow! And an Admiral no less! After doing a bit of research I found that I had seen this fellow once before in his infancy. I helped him back onto a leaf he had fallen off when he was just a larva! Unfortunately I didn't bother to get the camera then as I thought I had plenty of time but he was gone within a few hours. He was very beautiful.
