This big bird was sitting in our birdbath. It has been identified by Albert Golden as a Collared Sparrowhawk. He commented that the long middle toe and 'goggle' eyes identified it as such. It would have been sitting (as in the first photo) for at least 5 minutes while we were watching. It did look at me standing in the doorway with the camera, but appeared unperturbed. It then flew to a nearby tree (scattering little birds in all directions), then flew back to the birdbath, where it sat on the lip for another 5 minutes or thereabouts before flying away.
This flatworm was found crawling on a strawberry. It is Parakontikia ventrolineata. If you look closely at the flatworm in these first two photos, you can see one dark stripe, with two paler stripes either side, running along the dorsal surface.
This Cuckoo wasp was blue and was slightly larger than the green Cuckoo wasp in the next observation. The photos were taken around about the same time, of Cuckoo wasps on the fence post that has had holes drilled in it for bees and wasps to use for nest sites.
This tiny little bee has been identified as Hylaeus Gnathoprosopis euxanthus by Bernhard Jacobi. Although tiny and black, its large yellow 'collar' and yellow 'knees' made it look distinctive. The antennae look to be a reddish colour.
