A perfectly camouflaged matchstick and the Fire Bush Flowers!
A diverse variety of Fabaceae plants, or the pea family, are on full display during this wildflower season in South-West Western Australia (SW-WA). The Fire Bush (Daviesia physodes) is one of the native pea family members that flowers between July and November. Physodes has Greek roots i.e. physa means a stream of fire and odes means similar. These shrubs are prickly, grow to be almost two meters tall and produce bright and bold reddish/pinkish/purplish vibrant yellow flowers that certainly live up to the species name. Over the years, I have been able to photograph a variety of insects foraging on the Fire Bush. However, a perfectly camouflaged nymph matchstick has been the highlight of this season so far. This shot was taken within the Brixton St Nature Reserve in Kenwick (City of Gosnells), one of the most ecologically significant remnant wetlands of the Perth region that is also listed as a Bush Forever Site (no 387). #brixtonstreetwetlands#perth#southwestwa#westernaustralia#perthflowers#wildflowerseason#wildflowers#splendid_flowers#camouflage#matchstick#nymphs#flowersofinstagram#insectsofinstagram#macrophotography#insectmacro#flowermacro#firebush#fabaceae
Meet Reese! Isn’t she just the cutest?! She’s my side, side-chick because, you know, the two are inseparable. She’s 2yo, lives to play with her sister, Minty and loves to sleep on her back with feet in the air! Who else loves an #australianshepherd ?
