Butterflies to Come and Pass By

During the day, I came across 2 butterflies around my house. This butterfly, pictured [below] is a large one, with an approximate wingspan of 10cm. It is a rather common butterfly there, but I have never manged to get a picture of it with is Beautiful Luminous Blue on the topside of its wings. This individual was seen laying eggs on a herbal plant, and I only got a shot of it with the underside of the wing being shown. But as I headed to the plant to see the egg, I didn't find any. Strange, huh?

The next one was a very common Long Bush Brown. I found it beside my house, camouflaged in the leaf litter.
