we grow plumeria here is what we achieved this year
Many thousands of young dead fish have been observed on the Port Noarlunga and nearby beaches.
Caterpillars on a swan plant Asclepias physocarpa
a shell and fossil of shell
macro of a sponge
Jawbone of snapper in South Australia.
so how big was the fish I wonder...
a large hornet or wasp, I have seen these dragging huntman spiders away to a burrow in sand.
I assume they can sting...so thats as close as I get.
not a big black one...smaller and brown.
very tiny, walking on a toothpick.
tried to revive him but didn't make it.
found on a tomato...good subject for my new macro hobby
sorry this is more art than science, but worth reporting.
This one is injured, hobbling around a dogs off leash beach.
I am not sure if I have the correct species.
This one is being disected by a few ants.
more than 50 in this shot and many more scattered about.
as they open over summer
This little guy is a long way from home...in UK I hear they are in decline, we have many all around.
bath time...but you haave to be quick
A family of ducks mowing the lawn...I think they are Australian Wood Ducks.
growing on an old casuarina.
A nankeen kestrel....
And looking thru the other shots,
I see it has a lizard!
