Trapped

As we stood at the lookout at 1770, imagining the captain sailing around the headland in 1770 to drop anchor, I noticed a lovely butterfly trapped in a cobweb. It must have just happened because it was fluttering madly trying to escape. I managed to get top and bottom photos.

Ah the great moral dilemma of the naturalist.
Did you free it?
Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
Hopefully one of our lepidopterist friends might tell us what species it is. I have not seen anything like it, myself.
Cheers

Well done to get an ID on it.
The North Qld people have got theior Butterflies are pretty well documented, it seems. Good.

Cheers
