Yellow Admiral Butterfly (Vanessa Itea) were very common, on our farm there was plenty of stinging nettle in the thick bush, their main source of food, they laid their one or two eggs onto the nettle leaves which the larva would eat, and for sure humans won’t go near it.

They also feed on the nectar from the Hebe flowers that is common in the bush.

Normally the last of the season’s brood survive as larvae until the next season so their survival rate is good.
