Shot for maybe 30 seconds from 8:23 AM. A coal-black pair of small (perhaps 30-40mm wingspan) 'butterflies' circling blooming 3m-tall Deinbollia oblongifolia tree. One (this) showed neon orange face from below when it caught the low morning sunlight. The other (female?) was matt black overall. The bright fellow eventually settled, briefly, revealing golden-yellow shoulder bars and bright yellow wing-bars. The peculiar inflated orange headpiece might be collected pollen, but as it matches the colour of the puffy front tibiae and 2nd and 3rd leg 'kneecaps', I think not. The antennae are long, moth-like, finely-toothed and bright orange. And the 'tripartite' mouthparts simply weird.
