Insects are one of the world's mega-groups - such a diverse show of species. Insects are not too difficult to find, not to hard to photograph but they are difficult to understand their life styles and habits. Join this project to explore the world of insects in Australia.

    Hi Hermit -- BowerBird is in the process of closing down. We suggest you move your activities to iNaturalist where there is a BowerBird project and much identification assistance is available. Few people are now looking at BowerBird.

    Looked like a VERY large cricket but did not hop, it walked everywhere, and instead of jumping/flying/running away when threatened with a finger, it chose to attack, front feet raised and mandibles (?) spread, it advanced several rapid steps forward.

    Wow, thank you Michael - great to know! Pretty sure I've seen those flowers on a nearby property.
