Currently Brisbane is being invaded by butterflies.

When I look out on my back yard there are clouds of them flitting above the grevillias....
but when I try to take photos of them  !!!!

Finally I just zoomed, pointed and clicked and managed to capture a few.

Apparently this is an event which happens every six to 10 years.

Millions of Caper White Butterflies migrate from west of the Great Dividing Range to breed.
The increased number of butterflies across Brisbane could be attributed to good rainfall out west.

Here is a closer view from the local newspaper.

We can expect them to be around for the next month or so.



  1. Very few butterflies here in the UK this summer.It is being blamed on a wet Spring????

    1. It is lovely to see them Barbara. We look like we are heading for a dry Summer. Everything is brown and dry.

  2. How wonderful to see all the butterflies! So pretty.

  3. It is nice to hear of a natural phenomenon like this - not the result of human interference.

  4. They've not bothered to visit us up here on the hill...preferring the city lights and life to our leisurely village atmosphere, no doubt! :)
