A Dingy Bush-brown, Mycalesis perseus (Nymphalidae), under our mango tree, showing just why Dingy is good: it brings safety from predators.
My garden is full of dragonflies at the moment (rain, too, but that’s harder to photograph).
Sad pic, happy ending for the subject but not the photographer …
This is a very pretty wasp which I have seen only occasionally at home and never got a photo of, until today when I saw one fly into a spider web under the house. I grabbed the camera, took a couple of quick pics, grabbed a twig and carried it outdoors by the web.
So far so good.
I hooked it onto a convenient plant, lifted the camera to get a better shot … and the ungrateful little so-and-so wriggled free of the web and flew off!!
