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.

Drone Fly

Another of nature’s beauties, she was sheltering from the wind and rain on a leaf near the ground and stayed long enough for me to get a few shots, turning this way and that so I could get a few different angles. Thank you fly.

Shield Bug – Predator

This Shield Bug was on the bushes in the garden where the the Longhorn and other Beetles live. It must have been hungry since it attacked the Longhorn Beetle you see and followed it off into the shadows.
