One of the places I shoot, the local scout camp, has age old wooden bollards separating cars from grass. So old and weather worn they have become habitats in themselves. These pix are from one of them.
Larva, in and out of all the cracks and crevices.
Pupa, just sat there, as pupa do.
Adult a wandering, here, there and everywhere.
A few were deformed somehow, wings and cases, but still got around.
Dark Predator, she had a nest in a dried curled leaf hanging on the side where she guarded two egg sacks.
Scavenger, tiny ant about as big as half an antennae on the adult Ladybird, actually hung on to the mouth area of the big fella until thrown off at a run, rodeo style.
And the ever present jumping and dancing entertainment.
Life goes on, and on!
