It is a very dull day with light showers but I went for a walk to see if the mistletoe had flowers yet.  Only buds today but something I didn't look for is the caterpillars.  I think they may be saw fly larva rather than butterfly or moth larva.

You may have to search but there are a bunch of caterpillars or larva

The flower buds are long and thin.  There are over 90 species of mistletoe native to Australia.

This is the smallest of the everlasting daisy family.

This species of eucalyptus is just starting to flower.

The cap is still stuck to this one.

This one is just starting to open.  The cap is almost pushed off.

Buckinghamia is a tree native to rainforests of North East Queensland Australia.

They are a popular tree that attracts a lot of insects.  Honey bees love them.

All of this is just a short walk, even for an old man, from my house.
