With a little bit of rain we started to see a sudden arrival of some new grasshoppers and many crickets. There was one Jumping Spider that made a regular appearance as well. I think everyone is waiting for some good rain of course with the rain we are starting to see quite a few fungi species fruiting. The mushroom itself is like a fruit, and the rest of the lifeform lives in the ground or on plant matter. Let’s Go Shroomin Tours commencing 10th of January and every Sunday morning at 8.30am.
One of my favourite grasshoppers has made its return. The gorgeous Methiola picta grasshopper is quite striking with its bright red and green colours. They tend to be fairly chilled about having a camera stuck in their face as well.
Saptha Libonata this absolutely stunning little moth does not have a name, so I have taken the liberty to name it a Metallic Rainbow Moth. I saw 7 in 1 day and have now learned that they favour a particular plant.
