Sunday Spinelessness - Christmas dinner
Sunday Spinelessness may have been on hiatus for Christmas and the New Year but the spineless themselves don't observe holidays. During my break in the sunny Wairarapa I've been keeping and eye, and a couple of lenses, on some of the backyard bugs and if I was to say one thing about them it would be that they are hungry
Take the Sidymella crab spiders (previously featured on these pages) hiding in the Christmas Lilies and in particular on dahlia flowers:
Having found at least one of the items on the crab spiders' menu it became clear the fly is pretty common too. It's no surprise that the bright yellow dahlias are one if the flies favourite haunts.
