April's Fynbos Rambles

We walk to Noordhoek Fire Lookout to see Erica physodes. Sticky with bugs, protection against nectar thieves.

Trapped on sticky flower. Erica physodes is sticky to deter nectar thieves. But this fly couldn't bore into the flower tube?

Also a couple of tiny insects trapped here? (picture 3)
