Description:

After the last people left for the day, I still scurried around and tried to find a few more interesting plants or animals since I didn't much chance to do much during the rest of the day.

Was pleasantly surprised to find the little butterfly on the Protea. Not sure if they are a known pollinator, but I'd imagine quite a few species of bugs visiting the "odorous" flowers.
