I thought I would have a moth or two to photograph over the past few days, but no. The nights have been mild for this time of year and we really need rain again. Even the fungi wandered off!
The camera has been mobilised however. I found a frog!
The second Blog will be updated reasonably regularly whilst this one dips into a bit of a hiatus until the invertebrates begin to move again.
On Mosura's advice, I closely inspected the tagasaste for any evidence of caterpillar activity particularly in light of his recent entry on the Tree Lucerne Moth. Although some smaller branches appeared to be defoliated, there was regrowth, so the caterpillars have possibly been and gone.
While the weather is more springlike than winter, I guess I will just continue plucking capeweed from my lawns until I find some action somewhere! :-)
