Butterflies and Nesting Coots

On a recent trip we stopped off at Lake Dulverton where I found this pair of Eurasian Coots ( Fulica atra ) busily building there nest among the Water Ribbons.






The  Australian Painted Lady butterflies (Vanessa kershawi) have been very active lately. You may notice it is very similar to Vanessa cardui which has an almost worldwide distribution.




Thank You!
