After a bit of brekkie we spent the morning in the garden enjoying the sunshine and firing off some shots of the insects.
Sphaerophoria scripta, female, very numerous in the garden
Sphaerophoria sp, although one iSpotter has suggested Xanthogramma pedissequum
Lucilia sp, a Green Bottle.
Snapped a couple of flowers too...
and Ox-eye Daisy
and a tiny bee, perhaps a Coletes sp, only 6 or 7 mm long. Late edit - Halictus rubicundus
As we left the reserve we said to the ranger 'looks like an Osprey sort of a day'. Guess what?...no not us; him a phone call at lunchtime told us he' just had an Osprey going south...well the gulls here never picked it up, probably a touch too far east for them to bother with...drat.
Where to next? Out somewhere on safari tomorow, not sure where yet. Some moths to get acquainted with tonight if the rain stops...
In the meantime let us know what the rain dropped in your outback
