Flies on Monarch caterpillars

Hi Jacqui, Attached is a you tube video link and two photos of the flies all over the monarch caterpillar. It would be interesting to know why they are doing this. The lady in our group is very distraught finding this today in her garden.. Thanks Charlotte

Something wrong with this plant?

Could anyone tell us what could be wrong with this swan plant. Emma lives in Riverhead and we had our butterfly meeting at her place yesterday and we are all keen to know what could be wrong? Thanks Charlotte

Butterfly display at Animates West Gate in Auckland

  Attached are photos Skylar (my granddaughter) took of the butterfly display at Animates in Westgate on Saturday 13th October. We had a lot of people stop and enquire about the Admiral and Lesser Wanderer butterflies we had on display. A few people took away brochures and asked many questions.   Regards Charlotte & Skylar
