Critter of the Day: bashful beauty

This photo was taken just a few days ago.

Potato Beetle looks like he’s got some plans…

… for world domination! 😀

Then he got all cute on me.

Awww… What a beauty!

We’ve been having overnight rains pretty steadily for the past while. I’ve noticed it’s had an effect on the platform feeder.

In the blue jaw photo I posted a few days back, there’s just a single blade of green visible on the platform. There are 5 days between that photo and this one, and you can see how seeds have start to root under a layer of wood on the platform feeder.

We’re going to have to come up with something to replace this. It’s long past its expiry date!
