So scarce these past two years that seeing this very handsome young lady among a patch of lavender had me smiling from ear to ear.
Found this little one while moving a few bricks. Yes, I was a bit surprised!
The Butterfly finally emerged from the Chrysalis. I missed the actual event as I was out for my morning jog.
But when I got back this was what greeted me. Isn’t she beautiful?

Since the arrival of the hens, and their relentless pecking, certain insects have been thin on the ground – literally in some cases – so it was something to smile about when I found this young lady yesterday.
Maybe with the onset of the rainy season here in Johannesburg more insects will soon make an appearance?
