Here in my work, is a small low bush of Masaki, 柾, Japanese spindle, Euonymus japonicus, floating in a grassland like a small island. This evergreen bush is then populated with various small predators such as spider, mantis, frog or lizard. It gives nice hide for them from birds or other stronger predators.
