I tried many times to take a close-up of a lovely bulb, Tulbaghia violacea, but either it was too breezy, or my compact camera kept over-exposing, or I got cross - I can still smell the oniony fragrance on my fingers - so I opted for the bright red berries of this cotoneaster growing below the deck. It was only while focussing on it that I noticed some movement at the top, which turned out to be a shield bug. After another dozen pictures I managed one which is reasonably in focus, so here it is!
