A delicate little fungus that formed on amaranthus twigs that were in a container. It is very unusual for fungus to form on drying twigs in our dry climate, so I suspect there was something on the twigs which caused the fungus to grow (caterpillar poop or something).

I saw these flowers on a large tree (at least 6m high). No idea what it is or alien or not.
Flower (pic 1) about 100mm diameter.
Each little ball is about 5mm diameter and consists of 4 quadrants (pic 2).
5 red strings lead to each little ball, one string to each quadrant and one to something inside (pic 3)
At a stage the little balls open up showing the inside of the quadrants (pic 4 and 5) and the feature that's in the middle (pic 5) which looks the stamen to me (diameter about 3mm)

Lkely to be this.
From Ericas of the Cape Peninsula:
Diagnostics:Sepals large and coloured, 3/4 length of corrolla, plants many stemmed, resprouting.

Flowerrs arranged in a loose spike, inflorescence consisting of a loose head, below which are very reduced side branches with three to six flowers eac. Calyx pale pink. Corrolla deeper pink with dark lobes.
Not abundant, but widespread on hils and mountains on the Peninsula...
Only known as a resprouter Can easily be confused with Erica corifolia which has dark tips to the sepals, a simple terminal inflorescence and is mostly a single stemmed reseeder.

Nest construction in dark passage leading to my study on plaque on cloakroom door. Interrupted her carrying mud ball at 12:19. Happily she came back to smooth the hastily-placed ball after I'd turned on the passage light to get better shots.
By 15:59 she'd completed the nest, leaving the top unsealed to insert her caterpillar host.
Last pic shows an old nest (summer 2018) with sealed top on a wall-hanging on the opposite side of the same passage. The hatched wasp has obviously chewed its way out the side.

After relocating and re-measuring the ant it measures 7mm or just over. I got a few shots off before it disappeared. Will have another look for it tomorrow morning. Interesting one - cannot find it in the book.
