Spotted a female harlequin hibiscus bug this morning. The brown honeyeater and a willy wagtail - it's unusual to see them both at the same time on the birdbath. Usually the honeyeater is very timid and the wagtail quite aggressive. The bottlebrushes have almost finished flowering but there are still a few wanderer butterflies around. And plenty of grasshoppers, lurking behind the palm fronds … … or hiding in the bottlebrushes.
