Description

The first time I had ever seen this, i videoed the entire event as well from entry to exit. It was as if this species swims all the time. I sent it to a frogmouth expert and she had never seen that before. The bird chose to swim and flew away very easily after its swim. There appeared to be no explanation for the bird swimming as it was not particularly hot or anything unusual.

Continuing Owl at this location. Was mostly napping today. Changed perches a few times, and it looked like he wanted to hunt for a bit, but he didn't make any dives or catches. I'm guessing his snakes aren't around anymore since it's cold now?

caught in the act


this spider is living in the bush behind the house, as she has grown she has moved her web completely 1 m to the side and from then on just daily modifications. At one point she had a magnificent orb web about 75cm diameter but over the past 2 weeks as she has got fatter and fatter she has allowed the web to deteriorate, the supporting structures have been strengthened but the orb is now a tatty 25cm diameter. There have been 3 or 4 attendant males hanging around.
The female has developed a taste for bees and races after them with enthusiasm but other insects such as the fly that died by strangulation and the butterfly which was trapped were ignored.

When dealing with a bee the female has a definite plan of action. Initially she grabs the victim, returns to the centre of the orb with it, bites it, trusses it and then she suspends it below her at the tip of her leg and leaves it there for some minutes before reeling it in again and proceeding to devour it.

On this last occasion the dominant male took the opportunity of closing in while the female was busy consuming her bee and mating occurred. This continued until the meal was finished when the female took cognizance of his presence and swiftly brought a leg in to swipe at him but he was faster and leapt to safety.

OK wow. The big spider was fiddling with the rolled-up petal thing for quite a while, before suddenly darting over to the side of her web to nab a fly that had just landed. She returned to the center of the web with it and munched on it for a while before wrapping it up in a silk mummy, which I'd never seen being done before. Really cool how she hung on with a couple legs and wrapped with the others. The smaller male spider came forward and seemed interested in the prey situation, but didn't get too close.

This is probably the craziest cricket I've ever encountered: fairly large body size, with enormous, very disproportionate mandibles, which are bifurcated into one outer and one inner "leg".

If threatened, e.g. when slightly touching it with a finger, it threw itself on its back, remained motionless but ready to bite, and eventually rolled over onto its feet.

Rob Felix and friends in his orthopteran Facebook group came to the conclusion that this is Nasidius truncatifrons or N. monachus. Many thanks for the ID!
