New Life.

By johnke
A Garden Acraea hatching and drying out from the Pupa on a Black Jack. Black Jack a weed imported to South Africa from Argentina as Horse Fodder by the British, during the Boer war. Who new that this nuisance weed would take over. You can see by the small spikes how this grips most things including materials of any kinds. A small to medium sized Butterfly of around 3cm.

Good Morning to everyone, thank you very much for your kind support and comments each day they are much appreciated and also a thank you to John, Alan, Peter and Walt for the special awards

The British seem to be responsible for a lot that went wrong with the world in the past. Beautiful light and colours in this image John.
