Wordless Wednesday – All Around Us

Insects

I had a couple of examples of interesting life around us on the holidays. The first was the enormous moth above – it’s as long as my finger! It’s a hawkmoth, which comes from the Yeperenye caterpillar and is an important Dreaming spirit in the Alice Springs region. It was just in a corner of the pedestrian mall in Alice.

And this is a weed I was pulling out of the garden. It looked perfectly normal but when I grabbed it, it snapped. You can see it’s hollow and there are grubs of some sort inside.

Just a couple of the fascinating things all around us if we look.

The strangest thing I have ever seen was some kind of cocoon attached to a fence. What ever was growing inside of there was spinning. It was so bizarre, it was translucent, the cocoon, so you could see the insect growing and turning. I’ll never forget it.

Wow, I’ve seen a chrysalis where you could see something inside, but nothing like that. It would have been amazing.
