These Hairy pipefish (Urocampus carinirostris) were photographed by David Paul at Croajingolong National Park in Mallacoota. This species of Pipefish is one of the most common in eastern Australia. They are covered in hairy appendages which provide camouflage when they’re amongst eelgrass and seagrasses. Hairy Pipefish use their tails to cling to vegetation or even each other such as the male and female pipefish are in this image. Hairy pipefishes reproductive mode is ovoviviparous (gives birth to live young); their eggs are brooded by males in a pouch on the underside of their tail.

What do you think of the faux Opal  casing of this Atlas head?  This is one I did a year ago, should I make a full beetle?

Yellow-crowned(Marattha) Woodpecker 
The yellow-crowned woodpecker (Leiopicus mahrattensis) or Mahratta woodpecker is a species of small pied woodpecker found in the Indian subcontinent.

It is called so not just because it was first described from this region (Part of current day South Maharashtra and Central India), but also probably because the red crown of the male resembles the Red “turban” of the Maratha warriors.

Diatom…let the food chain begin!

It’s boggling what happens when silicon meets a single cell, as any phycologist or diatomist will tell you. This alien looking beauty is from Ernst Haeckel's 1904 Kunstformen der Natur (Art Forms of Nature), showing pennate frustules.

I am so happy that #itfoundmejunk is back this week, so here is my 5 word entry to play...
🏳•• Washed Up With The Tide ••🏳
Thank you for the reminder invitation to share something  @jeanninebee9 and I've also got to 🗃 file this under a belated entry for #happy😊hoarder KINDNESS OF STRANGERS because both Machel @mermaidsbox and Chris @gingercjx bestowed upon me this varied #seashell assortment for free!!
But alas, there's an unexpected stranger in the midst... 💀😏
Yep, I'm talking about the ominous dead thing.
~~~
Last month, I was scrolling through IG when a post caught my eye 👁 @gingercjx had stumbled upon a little #washedup animal skull during one of her walks down #BristolHarbor in Rhode Island!
I fell in love immediately (as I do with most unclaimed dead things) and she said "yuck, I left it there!"
I said "oh I do hope it's there when you go back."
And she claimed a crab 🦀 crawled out of its #eyesocket when she walked past, and I exclaimed "you're just making me want it MORE!" 🤗
Well lo and behold if she didn't march right back down to that beach, glove up for sanitary collection, and ship it to me! 📦😃 Now that's #friendship y'all
👩🏼‍⚖️ Jury is still out on a confirmed species, but it might be a #mink (or my secret hope) a #wolverine because I don't have one of those in my collection yet! People are awesome, and I'm humbled to call you all friends 🙋🏼

So the other day I pulled the back yard around a bit.
Whilst dragging an Acer around so noticed this but it looked liked it had just hatched.... wings crumpled and flexing its abdomen at strange angles.
I went indoors to get my phone and take a snap but it had gone.
Half an hour later saw this Sat on a stone flag.

Anyone got any ideas.... do saw flies have to have antennae? What is it?
It was about 2 cm long.

A portrait of a male Asiatic Lion (Panthera leo persica). Once found in Turkey, Iran, Mesopotamia and several provinces in India it is now only found in the wild in a single population in Gujarat, India. The Asiatic lion's mane is less pronounced and the body is smaller than the African lion. Disastrous and pointless hybridisation experiments between the two species occurred in India in the late 1980s leading to sickly offspring with defects and shortened lifespans. There is no way the two species would encounter each other in the wild. That project was shut down and only pure Asiatic or African lions are now bred in captivity. There are less than 200 adult males left in the wild. #asiaticlion #lion #bigcat #pantheraleopersica #bristolzoo #canon1DX #canon100400ii  #fauna #ig_discover_wildlife #mammal #mammalphotography #nature #naturalhistory #naturelover_gr #PHOTOARENA_NATURE #uk #portrait #splended_animals #lightroomcc

The Natural History and Pitt Rivers Museum was overwhelming in the best sort of way.  The latter in particular was like being in a giant overflowing cabinet of curiosity and I came away with a head (and camera) full of inspiration in the form of insects, shells, feathers, tools, rocks, pots, wood carvings, woven baskets and fabric from around the world. The roof was pretty special too...

​These field ants (Formica sp) and aphids have an interesting relationship. The ants protect the aphids from predators; in return, the aphids provide the ants with a sweet honeydew liquid.  With strokes of their antennae the ants stimulate the aphids to produce the sugary substance.  While it seems like a mutualistic scenario, a parallel to cattle ranging is often made in discussions of this relationship and perhaps aptly, as the ants do control the aphid colony much like a rancher does cows.  These aphid-herding ants often transfer the aphids to plants with preferable sap. They are also known to bring the aphids into the colony at night for protection and to shelter aphid eggs over the cold winter months.  To keep the aphids from dispersing the ants may clip off the wings of adults or excrete chemicals that prevent wing development at all. Watching this interaction up close is quite mind-blowing.  San Juan Mountains, Colorado
