Bug eyed monster...or monster eyed bug

The Safari saw a Starling on the edge of R'ouzel Puddle this morning and that was the highlight of the day's sightings! The sea was flat calm but sightings at bothe the early and lunchtime sessions were confined to a handful of Sandwich and Common Terns...dull!

We checked our pot for signs of activity on the damselfly front...not a hint of movement - poor thing had died for some unknown reason. But that gave us the opportunity to get some 'posed' mega close-ups.

Eye detail - note how it has a dint in it

Then we got news of a swarm of Honey Bees on the way back to Base Camp so we called in for a quick look-see...no we didn't stick our hand into it...too high to reach!

Anyone fancy counting them?
 Where to next? More of the sea-same...hope there's some action tomorrow.
In the meantime let us know what's swarming all over your outback.

Once had a swarm of Honey`s settle in my garden, Dave. Excellent, it was.
