A kind of Beetle only found on the pink Crucifix Orchid, so far. Surveying her domain.

She loves a good feed of the freshest buds, both with a colourful heart.

Aware too of the photographer, just doesn’t know me by name.

Disappearing for days at a time she comes and goes by her own nature’s design.

Looking good in her yellow jacket, a warning to some perhaps. Pretty on pink …

Always climbing back up towards the light, where the freshest buds are found.

The rain came followed by a cold snap, here in a sub tropical Brisbane winter, and must have driven all the small creatures into the depths for survival. Those it didn’t kill.

Such is nature, everything in constant flux, no rest in any condition for too long. And of course the weather can be reflective of what’s inside, if you can see it.

Rain to wash away the dust of seasons past, cold to wake you up or knock you down. Nature doesn’t care one way or another, or cares for all the same.

So, Beetle or man, you shake it off or take it on, rise up and start another day.
