Welcome Night Time Visitor

It was late, around 11.30pm and I should have been in bed a long time before this. Luckily I was not and was actually attempting to instruct a winter blow fly out of the house using the old “follow the light” trick.

It was then I saw him. Quietly sitting in the tree in the front yard.  A Tawny Frog Mouth.  Such a beautiful little fellow and extremely accommodating in allowing me to take a quick snap as he took a break from chasing the moths in the area.

Could not have asked for better on this brisk and clear night.

mmm, I cannot actually tell you if the fly got out or not, I lost concentration as I ran for my camera and flash!!  If he is not out, there is always “follow the light part 2” tonight.
