This chap comes under the welcome category. Along with several friends who were busily working the newly opened Melaleuca flowers.

Whether this character comes under the heading of welcome or not depends on how one feels about being serenaded by a dawn chorus of cicadas. It was busily zizzing away on one of our olive trees.
