    This Tiger moth Amata annulata flies during the day. Its bright colours are an example of aposematism, (from Ancient Greek: apo away, sema sign), the advertising by an animal to potential predators that it is not worth attacking or eating. It probably tastes awful or is poisonous. Many other animals - insects, frogs, reptiles are protected in this way. It’s perhaps an alternative to camouflage for protection. But that's not all. Colour is not much use at night, so this moth can emit ultrasonic clicks to warn off bat predators it at night.

    Fungi on Mona Vale Dunes mulch. The Instagram version doesn't show the whole picture. One big fawn one about 10cm across and another tiny grey one on a long stalk like an fairy's umbrella. Spore print (3rd photo ) will help an expert give us an Identification. Fungi are a form of life separate from all others. Hugely important, highly variable, mostly invisible, yet everywhere. ...

    The Garden Orb Spider can be in your face! Just think though - that healthy spider means it has eaten a lot of insects, maybe stopping a plague of some. Spiders are a sign that there is a good population of insects around. What's the use of insects? Well, pollination, food for birds, food for other insects, food for frogs and reptiles such as skinks - part of a healthy ecosystem. ... See MoreSee Less

    Every living thing has a purpose, please stop killing harmless spiders. I know funnel webs are dangerous, but the Australian Reptile Park need them for anti venom!
