At last!


8 months since I've found a larva. So common last year, so rare now. Fairly recent range extension down south: perhaps the predators and parasites have now caught up? Or, poor rainfall during 2018?

House girl


Ridiculously determined young girl jumped into the house every night for a week. Very distinctive golden beauty. Carried her out to 3 of the 4 corners of the garden (not near the drive). Mattered not - the next night she was back! Maybe she'll accept the fern rockery feature on the front terrace as compromise (last pic)?
