Macro Monday: Autumn Flower Fliers

Fatsia japonica is an Asian shrub which flowers in autumn. I do not have it for the Insects, and I never really considered it a shrub which the Insects would turn to for a last feed before they go into hibernation somewhere hidden away from sight and the cold.
As it was, there have been lots of Insects feeding on the flowers. The individual florets look like tiny poached eggs.

If you want to post macro photos on Monday, and want to spread the word of your blog, go to Lisa's Chaos

I love the big eyes stuck onto the head. Looks more like a wart to me!

This is my Fatsia japonica from my window:

The last thing I expected to photograph this month would have been a creature smothered in pollen! It is mid November after all, temperatures had dropped to minus two during the night.


  1. These are all really great!!! But thanx alot - they already creeped meo ut, lol. Now, thanx to you they really creep me out. :0)

  2. Wow! And they are distracted enough to stay still for you! These are great captures.

  3. Thanks for dropping by and leaving these lovely comments.

    Lisa, creepy crawlies is what interests me!

    Bom. I just park myself next to the Fatsia; camera ready to go, and the Insects come to me! Just sit/stand totally still, and you are just garden furniture., food is more important.

    what's more: they more preoccupied than those feeding Insects I photographed during the summer. A definite reaction to the need for food in these colder temperatures.

  4. Hi Shammera, thank you for calling into Wildlife on Wheels. I will check out your blog later.
