While Penny was enjoying one of her walks on The Ninety Mile Beach in Gippsland last week, I spotted something bright at the edge of the water. It seemed to be a dead butterfly but, to my excitement, when I splashed into the waves to lift it gently, it moved.
I carried it up to the sand dunes beyond the reach of high tide and put it on a small flowering plant.
A little research on the Net has shown it to be an Imperial White.
How beautiful it is!
