While on the subject of persistence, here are some examples from other animals. The photo above is of the magnetic termite mounds in Litchfield National Park just south of Darwin.

I was excited to see your first photo, we were at Litchfield National Park about a year ago! Truly amazing how they orient their homes!

They’re fantastic photos – despite making me squirm a little! Love the spider web photo. That would have to be my favourite. 🙂

The photo with the dew on the web is great! I wish I could get up early enough in the morning to take photos like that. Hope you were not to close to the spider and used your zoom 🙂

The spider was on the outside of a window 🙂 But they get very, very big!

Great pics. Those termite mounds are truly amazing. We were at Litchfield last year and the line of them reminded me of a huge swath of tombstones. The sheer size of some of them is also mind blowing.
I’ve also been very close to an orb spider (trampling through a paddock), which is a far less happy memory!

I saw them in Litchfield NP 19 yrs ago – still amazed by them.
Thanks for linking up to WW.
