All manner of amazing butterflies, bugs, spiders, worms, crawling and flying creatures abound at Wombolly.
BUTTERFLIES - Georgeous creatures! So fragile, so beautiful. I never cease to be amazed at how far they can fly in such a short space of time. CICADAS - Every few summers, the peace of Wombolly is shattered with the massed, ear-spitting calls of cicadas. Various species crawl out of the ground, shed their brownish, shell-like bodies and, after drying off their wings, fly. They gather in the trees to suck the sap, mate, pee and call in a chorus that pulses up and down the valley.
The photos in this gallery are but some of the fascinating creatures that have been caught on camera.
