    Two ‘firsts’ for me in the one pic!

    I don’t believe i’ve ever seen a wasp like that either ( although the ‘bluebottle’ fly can have a greeny-blue ‘jacket’ like the one he’s wearing. 😉 )…

    … and i’ve never seen a purple/lilac gazania before neither! 🙂

    Beautiful.

    Apologies for my mis-identification above… of the flower! I saw the identical one over at Angloswiss’s blog today and she identifies it as an Aster. Since gazania are members of the same family i don’t feel so bad! 😉
