Captive breeding colony.
Captive specimens swimming.
Katydid found among flies in observation 1032941 http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/1034941
Small flies which stood on leaves and rhythmically moved their wings in what almost appeared like a dance.
It was flapping its wings at me as if trying to use those 'eyes' to spook me
I'm not sure if this is the same species we have in Perth
I thought I was only taking a photo of the nest
It reminds me of an Indian Awlking I saw when I was in Japan
First day in Adelaide so first of many species I don't know

This is just the trunk of a gorgeous Kauri tree in Adelaide's Botanic Garden.
Another magnificent eucalyptus, the Eucalypt grandis grows in Queensland and New South Wales. This huge specimen grows in Adelaide's Botanic Garden, where I learned there are over 700 species of eucalyptus in Australia!
The River Red Gumtree is called a "widowmaker," since it can spontaneously drop huge branches for no known reason. This one is in the Adelaide Botanic Garden, where a volunteer docent told me Australia has over 700 species of eucalyptus.
The green bark of the Bottle Tree (Brachychiton rupestre) can photosynthesize in a drought after all the leaves fall off! Water is retained in its bulging trunk, and it has pink leathery flowers
