Feeders and Creatures.
In reply to JiminDenver, 7 months ago

Thanks.

Got lucky I was having coffee under the trees and saw this butterfly flying pasts a tree . I did not see it exit and realized it had landed  on a feeder. Ran inside got the E-5 and scrambled in the bag for the lens. I managed to get about 8 shoots before it split.

Actually those feeders bring a lot of creatures to feed. I went out about 15 min ago it put fruit on the feeders as we where making fruit salad and there where left overs. Its dark on our side of the world at this time , so I was feeling in the dark

As  I was putting some melon on a skewer about 5 cold geckos fell on me . I nearly screamed like a girl and did what babies do in there nappies. I got a torch and checked it out. There where about 15 geckos on the feeder as they come to catch the insects and eat some of the fruit. Any way they all left due to the torch. I think I am going to set up a remotes with a flash to try and get them some time.
