Think insects got sold short in Townsville Common coverage yesterday. So went to great lengths to put matters right today. After titanic struggle manhandled reluctant cicada into plastic bag, transported it five kilometres to prime shedding spot, Threatened to nail it to tree if it didn't sit still a spell. So, lo, back view to complement yesterday's Rainbow Bee-eater victim.
Not content with this endeavour, did a little bark-prising and found well-mannered cockroach. Just had to wag finger close to its head and all movement ceased for minute or more. Local spiders failed to respond similarly. They'll learn in time.
And here's the third in insect atonement. An Osprey isn't an insect, you say? Ha, look closer.
Up by the bird's head. See it? Big dragonfly.Not easy to come by, these trained dragonflies. Almost rare as Daenerys Stormborn's sheep barbecuers. Summer is coming to the Common!!!
