A collection of Grasshoppers from the year just gone. They come in all colours and sizes and will eat all the vegetables if allowed to.

Odds 8

The little creatures are everywhere, when you take the time to just look and see. Neon Cuckoo Wasp captured by a black Assassin Bug on the power pole in the car park. Mosquito resting on a yellow flower. A Green Leaf Beetle wandering about the fallen leaves. The Droptail Lizard lying in the sun on the stairway. A Fly blowing bubbles on a leaf in the garden. Some of our tiny relatives, since we all live on the same Earth.

Odds from Roundabouts

It never ceases to amaze me the endless variety of form and colour of the small nature at our feet. It’s everywhere to be seen at different times and yet so few see it.

Cane Toad

This creature was introduced to Aus by industry in ’37 to combat the sugar cane beetles but since it doesn’t fly it didn’t do a very good job. It has done a very good job eating or killing everything else though. It has its own integrity.

Ichneumon Wasp

This is a rare instance when the wasp actually stops long enough for a few shots. The relative cold probably had something to do with it. Then a car backfired inĀ  the distance and she was gone.
