I love how the sun color's this little squirrel's tail!
A "dilly dally" of amazing Spring colors here so come and feast your eyes!
Not the normal fare of flowers, but rather some of the abundance of new life emerging after a very wet winter.
Our planet is filled with lovely little residents and I will show you some of them here.
A perfect color fit here between the beetle and the flower.
This could be one of the Blister beetles of the family: (Meloidae)
A young dragonfly here and too soon to verify the species!
One of the aloe flowers and I loved the sun highlight!
Now this guy above we know and it is a "Red Basker" (Urothemis assignata)
This is one above falls into the Longhorn family.
Here above we have a female Carpenter Bee. (Xylocopa caffra)
A little "Cape White Eye" searching for some insects!
Finally, here we have the famous little "Nightshade Ladybird" (Epilachna paykulli) landing on a leaf!
The thought that all of the rain during our past winter will result into an increase of insects and wildlife was correct and now only ten days into the Spring season they are starting to flourish.
Even the dragonflies are early, as they normally arrive during October. So, it seems at this stage that I will get many more species on film and I have already posted one of the new birds. the "Cape Spur Fowl" a few weeks ago.
So, we have much to look forward to and I will do my best to bring you quality posts.
And That's All Friends!
