I have seen a New Zealand native Yellow Admiral, Kahu Kowhai (l. Vanessa itea (was Bassaris))many times here in New Zealand but I have never been able to get a photograph such as I managed today. I had coffee with friends at The Mission View Gardens and when we arrived this splendid butterfly flew down beside me and posed. The butterfly was collected on Cook's voyage in 1769.
