Above is our Dwarf Powder puff bush, we had a bad storm last Thursday and the wind blew it over and the top fell into the pool. It is in a pot, and is alive, but the leaves all turned brown. UPDATE: I created the post a week ago, the tree is now dead.
Late in the afternoon, I stood looking at the leaves, and broke a piece to see if it is green inside. A gulf Fritterary almost sat on my camera a couple of times, then landed and just hung there.
Soon there were three of them hanging and settling in for the night. My friend told me several years ago to watch where they land at night because that is their roost and they will return again and again.
Standing 10 feet away with wings closed, they were perfectly camouflaged. The one below kept beating its wings and I managed one decent shot of them open. With the small camera I had to get to close and it upset them.
Come Home to Mama Rebel DSLR.. I am waiting. (waiting two weeks now)
