I do see lots of butterflies, and honeyeater birds around, but not so many bees. I wish I could photograph a ulysses butterfly, but they are so fast, and the brilliant colour is only on the back side of their wings. I am getting a new camera though so am pretty excited about the feature where you can take a series of photos very fast. I am getting the Fujifilm S1500SD - I wonder if anyone else is using that same camera? These butterflies sometimes sit and sip very slowly so are easier to capture on film.
This geisha girl normally attracts lots of bees, so maybe it is just the sunshine we are missing and soon the garden will be buzzing again.
The branches are lying down on the grass, so saturated with rainwater that they have no energy left to lift themselves up. The forecast for the weekend is sunshine, so I am ready, and so is the garden! Hopefully the bees and other pollinators are waiting in the wings for curtain time!
