23/12/20 Flora (& insects) survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
“Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action.” ― Ian Fleming. It's happened twice. I was standing taking a photo of the miniature world at Yellingbo - a beautifully camouflaged moth on a Eucalyptus trunk and a moth moving gracefully amongst the flowering Poa. A bird came in from nowhere and took the camouflaged moth... was that my fault? Was I watching too closely? Bang! The graceful moth was captured by a flying insect its same size, 6 orange legs wrapped around it, and taken away. Was I watching too closely - again? Coincidence? The natural world is fascinating, with looming enemies all around!!
