Time Event Rottnest insects in May, 2013

A few insects seen at Rotto in May Our method of observing insects on Rottnest has always been passive. Importantly, no creature is ever harmed. Discovery is invariably a surprise for us, and we try to photograph them without any interference where they are noticed. The first four images shown above fit into that category – there’s some camo hopper types and a waspy looking thingo, all of which were photographed by my wife Jill on the south side of the island. I took the two bottom images of beetles after they wandered into our bungalow last night. They were so twitchy they had to be temporarily placed in a white breakfast cereal bowl while I photographed them, and even then it was pretty difficult. They wouldn’t remain still at all, and longish one had the ability to suddenly flick itself out of the bowl and had to be retrieved a few times. As is usually the case with our island insect observations, we haven’t a clue about scientific names. © MMXIII Paul R. Weaver.

Click here to visit 'dogandcatwatcher', my YouTube website. Original still photographs are stored online in a cache at my Panoramio website or my Picasa site. Most of them have a brief description and a link back to a relevant essay. Images on Panoramio can usually be enlarged several times by clicking them. I have some free MP3 downloads of natural sounds available online. Click here. About the writer Check out each month's subject index on the Calendar Page for all my "common-man" monologues about survival in 21st century Australia – plus a little history occasionally. An original essay is added most days as part of an undertaking to write at least several million words. Zzzzzzzz!
