“The two Blue Triangle butterflies were feeding on the flowers of an ivory curl tree in my Tea Gardens backyard,” noted the photographer, Noel Collingridge.

“Even though the shot was taken at a fast shutter speed, the left wing of the butterfly on the right is blurred as their wings continue vibrating even when feeding.

“My interest in insects and wildlife was stimulated by my uncle Emil Zeck, an entomologist with the Department of Agriculture, during visits to my home in Mittagong when I was eight years old,” he added.
