Sneaky little Yellow Hunter

A flower bush filled with crawling caterpillars

One of these days the vineyard will be filled with butterflies!

Hot, Sunny weather, Good Food, Family and Great Friends, that is everything South-Africa holds for me. I have just moved to Stellenbosch in South-Africa where I am staying with my family on their small vineyard “Aan de Vliet”. Each morning after breakfast I go for a relaxing stroll through the farm gardens or around the small family vineyard. I am thoroughly enjoying the sunshine and the cold morning breeze that usually blows across the adjoining mountains.

Trying to get some close-ups of the caterpillars

On my first walk through the garden I came across a bush filled with bright yellow flowers and what looked like hundreds of caterpillars.

I had loads of fun photographing these tiny hairy little creatures until I noticed the little bright yellow hunter among them! This sneaky little critter blended in perfectly with the bright yellow flowers on the bush…the perfect place to hide while hunting.
