Caddisfly larvae build protective cases using materials found in their environment. Artist Hubert Duprat supplied them with gold leaf and precious stones. This is what they created.
Euphorbia wulfenii fasciation. A fabulous mutation affecting most if not all plants(of an unknown cause) called Fasciation. Ive seen it on a variety of plants all with spectacular effects but this has got to be the best yet. Taken at Ryton Organic Gardens Feb 09.
