Birds & butterflies.

Saturday morning and the dogs and I went for a walk, took the camera just in case.

Click to enlarge.


Last of the summers survivors, wings starting to look worse for the wear.


Will have to buy a book on SA butterflies so I can identify them.


These are tiny flowers but the obviously have enough nectar to satisfy this butterfly.


Cape sparrow, the seeds on this dried out bush were this birds breakfast.


Action shot, reaching for a seed.

Hi Phil, I thought it might be an African Monarch, but as I don't have my book on butterflies here in EA, I could be wrong. You can buy small pocket books on insects and reptiles. (Sasol, I think??) Check in Exclusive books when you next go to town. They're very reasonable too: about R55 each. Have a lovely weekend. Jo
