    Amazing Insects

    Isopods.... or as children call them, Rollypollies

    Meet the Peacock spider (Maratus volans) - a species of jumping spider native to eastern Australia. Only 5mm in length, it is only the males that have this bright colouring. The males also have extensions on their abdomen that can be folded down. They use these to display their colours and markings to females, earning them their name of ‘peacock’.

    Emergence. Saw this once. It was one of the most amazingly beautiful experiences of my life. The colors of the newly emerged cicada were incredible, blues and greens unlike any I had seen before in nature. The colors were so ephemeral, changing minute by minute, and so hauntingly beautiful. Words don't do this justice. Garden organically to preserve these beautiful lives.
