'I don't know why, we used to play around the tussock grass. Playing hidey. So they must have been big enough to hide around. And it was nothing to see a snake curled up inside the tussock grass.' Dot Peters, 1999

Female Common Brown butterflies are flying.


 

Bowat (tussock-grass) is long and dry.
