Jumpie vs. Hibiscus

We found a jumpie in the garden and coaxed it onto a hibiscus flower to get a nice red background and in the process it got some pollen grains stuck to its fur.

While taking the pictures the jumpie jumped straight into the pollen covered end of the hibiscus flower. 

The little guy was just covered in sticky pollen grains which took about 15 minutes to clean off.

Images from last weekend's safari to the Bonobo sanctuary. Lots of cool bugs including some strange alien-like spikey spiders.
