After chatting with Brian the other day about the paucity of butterflies, two minutes later  I walked outside

and saw four of these gamboling high up in the branches of a large overgrown shrub.

Flower of  the Peppadew plant. Fruit  on the way!

  1. Love that flower on the peppadew plant (I’ve never heard of such a thing). Get those potatoes hilled!!!


      1. I recognize them now! (Checked out the link). When I visit Australia, one of my favourite things at market is cheese-stuffed peppers – it must be those!


      1. I know what you mean! We have two similar fruit trees – peach and nectarine and we have never managed to find a way of discouraging birds or bugs.
        It frustrates my wife no end when the trees fruit but I have given up worrying.
        I doubt we would eat so much fruit in any case so let the bugs and birds feast upon them.
