Death by ambush

My brother in Cairns, (tropical Nth Queensland) sent me this. It’s the throat if an orchid with a similar coloured spider inside, that has caught a native bee in its maw.

Summer flowers at Allargue

These amazing Himalayan poppies or meconopsis are growing in the front garden. They only grow round this altitude. There are also some orchids which are growing below Allargue on the bank up towards the house, they look incredible.
