Description:

The much-larger female led him by the, err... nose. Flew off when I approached too close with him in tow, wings folded, dangling below her. Per second pic, she left him dangling when she settled on a more distant stalk.

Medium sized tawny orange butterfly hanging on a grass stem. Was lethargic in the early morning - covered in fine dew drops and unperturbed by my presence. Band of large white spots on the back wing tip. Thorax and head black with white spots. As it warmed up found several more flying around in the grasslands.
