Lunch time

What is it about white flowers in summer? Only one of the photos is of a plant natural to the Homerton area, but insects and beetles were loving the food sources available. Not much else was flowering in the bush.

The House Fly is on a Wild Carrot. The carrot is a weed that grows on the roadsides.

The Flesh Fly is on a Cassinia. We used to call it Christmas Bush because it flowers at Christmas time.

The beetle is on a melaleuca growing in the farm garden.

I wonder what those flowers would look like under UV light. Even if they don't have fancy landing-strip patterns, the reflected light might be just about shouting at the insects.
