Xingfumama’s Whatsoever is Lovely Challenge 2022 Week 9
This is my first contribution to this challenge. I haven’t had much loveliness in my life with the floods and rain over the past week. I have been able to get out into the garden and have found a bit of respite with my camera. Here is a bit of what I have found.
Some insects like a Dragonfly who seemed to follow me in the garden
A poor old Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly on a Pentas flower. She has seen better days. I used this angle so you couldn’t see how ratty her wings were at the rear
A Brown Ringlet Butterfly was resting on a leaf in the brief morning sun
The Wanderer Butterfly preferred the Bauhinia flowers
and not an insect but one of the smallest Honeyeater, a female Scarlet Honeyeater. This is the second mass flowering of the Bottlebrush tree bring so many birds into the garden.
