Shongregation


Big black fellas massing along thick Canary Creeper (Senecio tamoides) vine growing through Hallaria lucida tree. Seem to be scouring through the outer bark.

Off with his head!


Surprised to see Toppie (Dark-capped Bulbul) chasing and attacking one of the dozens of Apollos currently swarming about the garden. Never seen anything (apart from a Tropical House Gecko) take what seems to be easy prey.
The bird dropped the moth straightaway and it spiralled to ground - with dislocated wing. And no head.
I guess they must taste terrible ...

Leaf-folding larva (c. 35mm) deep inside Strelitzia regina leaf. Sticks its head out at night to nibble on the leaf-edge, withdraws coyly at torch shine.
