Nature's Place

Wild Fly

*Click on the pictures for a proper look … and click again

Getting all acrobatic about personal grooming. These tiny creatures are as clean as any human.

Another blast from the past, from the wilds of Wooyung by the beach – gone again before this gets published on schedule, no internet here.

    What a wonderful little being. I have to wonder how well all those tiny spikes protect it from predators. Perhaps from other tiny predators. Nature wouldn’t have evolved them without them being of some use.

      I’m sure their various design characteristics serve them well enough in their environment, as do ours. If one was to become invincible that would be the end of the rest of us. Just as well we all have a built in use by date, just in case.

        For sure.

    Such a cutie, especially the feet. We’ve seen a few like that in the garden over the summer.

      Yes, it obviously does some serious footwork.
