Telchinia esebria (I)

The Dusky Acraea, a common garden butterfly.
At top, the larger of the two mating would be the female.
Next a female ovipositing on the under surface of a stinging nettle leaf, the Urticaceae providing its foodplant.
A month later these eggs had hatched and the larvae well on their way.
