The Little things in Life

After going for a walk in Parsley Bay in Vaucluse, Sydney, I came across many interesting creatures. This included birds, lizards, foxes and more. However, instead of focusing on them I decided to try and find something smaller, something so different to us humans. Then I found this little one.

The┬ámulticolored Asian lady beetle or ‘Ladybug’, is very commonly found all over the world. They are a bit bigger than normal Ladybugs and can also cause a little more damage. Apparently they can damage the inside of homes during the winter as they are in there for warmth, and if they feel threatened they could release a very potent feremone which isn’t poisonous or anything, it does however have a very large stench.

The Orange Ladybug doesn’t cause very much harm at all, and mostly they can be seen flying majestically and continuing the cycle of nature.

The Dingo Didn’t Eat My Baby

Australia, dog, Nature, photography

Contrary to common belief, these magnificent creatures live on a majorly vegetarian diet. Funny enough they poop onto of a very spike-y plant which you can’t touch without getting little bits of razor sharp branch in your skin, this plant is called a spinifex and makes up 1/5 (20%) of Australia’s plant population said our tour guide Lou. It is a mystery how the dingo actually poops on top of such a painful plant.

This photo was taken at Ormiston Gorge (McDonnell Ranges, NT, Australia), which is a reliable water source in the dry season (winter), meaning that the wildlife is often active in this region. Of course we were extra lucky to spot a Rock Wallaby! (shown below)
