    Not a fly, but an owlfly - a lacewing. Very cool series of photos at different angles.

    Not sure if it's my computer playing up, but there's no map at all this morning, just a blank space where it should be. So I typed Tamborine Mountain in the Locality/Address box, but computer said 'No'...and asked for coordinates. I googled the latitude and longitude of Tamborine Mountain and entered them by clicking the 'Edit Coordinates' button.

    Thank you for the identification, Simon! Do you know what the pearlish knobby things on the end of the antennae are for?

    Hope someone can identify this insect, found clinging to a star picket.
