White Peacock Butterfly Nectars on Fairy Cups, Richardia Grandiflora
Zebra Longwing Butterflies like Richardia Grandiflora Flowers too. The butterfly is a lot bigger than the flower is; I wonder how much nectar they produce?
This White Peacock Butterfly is a bit tattered and torn. It looks like a bird took a bite out of its wing.
Green Bee On Fairy Cups, Richardia Grandiflora
Barred Yellow Butterflies are very small and extremely fast. The only time I get pictures of them is when they stop to nectar as this one did.

I call them 'exercise me' butterflies, because I have to follow them back and forth and around and around, until, If I'm lucky, they stop long enough to focus the camera on them. People watching, who are too far away to see the little butterfly I'm following, must think I've completely lost it.
