Morning Glory Bee + Black Fly + A Little Death ... *Macro
5

I put some old sweet potato in the ground and something else grew as well. The garden often does that, mysteries emerging.

This time it is a lovely morning-glory vine, where the passion-fruit vine used to be. A place for vines it would seem.

A few creatures visit it in its window of sunshine on a cold ‘winter’s’ day, taking what nourishment or shelter they can.

It’s the way of the garden, flowers as beacons to passing travellers, oasis of colour and nectar in man’s jungle.

I have seen this fly a few times over the years but never got a shot until recently when it flew across my path and landed on a big tree I was inspecting.

It looks black and white to the unaided eye, no colours at all, but some hues and shades appear when you get up closer. A fly’s eye view you could say.

And a little death, or life to some ...

This hopper is carrying a passenger.

A swarm of stingless bees invade another stingless bee nest and takes it over. In the process the vanquished are executed and discarded nearby. This went on for over a month, as I came and went.

Tiny spider makes its home in the shell of a shield bug that was had by a bigger spider.

Blue fly got itself caught up where no spider had been for a while. I helped it out. No need for it to die just yet.

It eventually flew away to buzz the garden for a while ... I got that web off it.
