These last few days have seen such an increase in the population of meadow brown butterflies. The fields are full of them fluttering around feeding off the grass flowers and other wild flowers, but they love the pittosporum trees. They are covered in a profusion of heavenly scented white flowers at the moment. If you disturb the trees hundreds of butterflies take to the air. However I have found it almost impossible to get a decent photo of them in flight. Our other insect delight is of course the fireflies. They are filling the field next to us at night with their pulsing displays, it is as though the field is alight with thousands of tiny dancing lights. Some tourist were amazed watching a small display near the bridge at the car park, they would have been in awe at what we watched from our outside stairs.
