All the white bits in the apple tree are webs - there were loads of them, just hanging from the branches like lace doilies.
I am SOOOOOO glad I saw this web before walking into it !! :o)
We always hear parakeets screeching overhead & they often pay a visit to the garden, especially at this time of year when they help themselves to apples on the tree. Sometimes, it's a race to see who gets to them first - me or the birds !! :o) This one sat in the tree for ages, while its mate flitted about from garden to garden. Not the best pic - I had to zoom in from a distance because I didn't want it to fly away before I got the photo.
