The Bush - Part 8

Have you ever heard of a Bird Dropping Spider.......?
His back is disguised to look like bird droppings so he can hide away from predators. In the picture above, it has some egg sacks it was watching over.
Wooly Bee fly.....
Hidden in a thick shrub I found this chameleon hiding but the poor thing look to be very old and thin. Later on I found another one which was in its prime. I am hoping that next season when I plant my garden, I will have a few in my plants too.
This is tiny, about 3-4 mm in length. I think it is the egg of a Braconid Wasp and I am watching it to see what hatches but knowing my luck, it will do so when I am at work. :)
