These flamboyant Monarch Butterflies have been teasing me for the past few days flitting through the milkweed while we worked to solve our wild pig problem. Today I went armed with my camera and caught this one being pointed out by two black speargrass seed heads. Black speargrass is a native grass of North Queensland and has a sharp little barbed seed with a long awn or tail designed to drive the seed into the soil as it dries. However it works equally well on the furry coats of animals like sheep - even some dogs and cats. It also likes clothes especially socks and is a real nuisance when you're working outside and a sharp little barb starts trying to twirl its way into your skin!
