It is a Wandering Donkey Acraea Acraea neobule neobule

but I don't know what it is up to -O- some butterflies are ground hugging fliers, maybe it does not like the aloe and you bring it back to the ground :-?

Thanks very much for the ID Toko.

If it is still in the aloe tomorrow morning I will place back where I found it.

This morning he was still on the aloe.

As he would not climb onto my finger again I snapped off the flower he was on and placed it on the lawn near the spot where I found him.

I went and checked 30 minutes later and he was gone.

I have seen this before at my in-laws. Amazing, when the wasp is so much smaller than the spider! :yes:
