Caterpillar Transformation.

 I was blown away watching the caterpillar to chrysalis stage.
 Nature is such a wonderful thing!
 It took about a minute to get to this stage from the hanging caterpillar.
 I had to use the flash for this photo and the next one as the plant was in shadow, and the wind was gusting..... again!
 The blurry black bit on the leaf below the chrysalis, is the tail end of the caterpillar, I guess there was no room for it.

 The finished product, tidy aye?

Feijoa Flower.

 This is one of the many feijoa flowers on our tree, shame I don't like the taste or texture.
