Jellyfish!

Just had to post these colourful images of jellyfish! I photographed these at Underwater world, Mooloolaba, Queensland yesterday, and am surprised how beautiful they look, under changing lights. There a few different species here, but all are amazing and delicate in appearance. I may even create some artworks using the pics as a basis for ideas.

Amazing!… a grasshopper emerges

What an interesting process, watching a grasshopper shed its old exoskeleton. The entire process took hours, and when I came out to look this morning it was still sitting on the adjacent leaf, possibly recovering from exhaustion. The grasshopper’s wings were completely straightened this morning, where as yesterday, late afternoon, they were still furled. This served to show me how vulnerable small creatures are, and how we should take notice of these wonders in our own backyards. Taz and I photographed the happening from time to time, so I’m sharing the images with you. Nature is amazing!
