Watching, always watching (In the Australian Bush)

Watching, always watching (In the Australian Bush)

You’ve got to love the sound of the Australian Bush, but crikey, put a few of these blokes together and the sound is deafening…

Yeah, we’ve got a few creepy crawlies, but these little blokes are nothing to worry about…

Hey, what are you doing on my hat!

      I was driving back from the mountains a month or so back and I thought I had a wheel bearing problem, stopped only to discover it was the cicada’s! 🙂

      Now there’s a thought, let’s call it “AK” after all “it” seems so impersonal… 🙂

    That looks like the mother of the bedbug I saw at the YWCA in Sydney! 🙂

      Crikey, best I just let that comment go through to the keeper (cricket speak)…

      Was that the YWCA by the Harbour Bridge or up near Central Station? But apart from a dodgy bedbug (careful Baz) I hope you enjoyed your stay in the greatest harbour city in the world!

      Oh yes, there we go, it had to be a “him” didn’t it… 🙂

      Hi BG, they are actually quite tame, as bugs go, and trust all is well in the running and rowing department…

    I love the red dot right in the middle!

      Not sure they usually have that, perhaps it is Indian? 😉 – no offense intended to my Indian friends….

    Oh Lord, I had a big stick bug jump on my head when I was sunning at the neighbor’s pool this last summer! I like watching bugs but not when they jump on my head!


    • Baz - The Landy November 26, 2013 / 11:32 am

      Well they’ll do it to you… 😉 Trust all is well otherwise!

      Strewth, I had to get up nice and close to it…! I did say to Janet, here’s your chance to wrest control of the (my) Nikon 600, she declined, whilst giving me a clip around the ear for being cheeky!

    Is that a cicada? I see that as a tag. Answered my own question.

    Nice closeup.


    • Baz - The Landy November 26, 2013 / 11:26 am

      Good pick…they are actually quite colourful.


      • Jim in IA November 26, 2013 / 11:51 am

        We have this annual one.
        And there are some 17 yrs cycle ones. Neither is very colorful like yours.
