Rain

I love rain. In Queensland when it rains it is warm so you can be out in it for ages.

Ants:

Have you ever wondered how ants plug up their holes so water doesn’t get into their nest? This is what we observed in one species last week, a living ‘door’

Termites

Termites making an addition to their nest. We watched them a few weeks ago and their skills in building, teamwork & cooperation is incredible

Fungi

A few days before the day of rain we had a couple of smaller storms and all kinds of fungi began sprouting out up out of the debosia and hardwood chip

These ones looked like flowers and if they are left on paper they leave a flower like spore pattern

Bright Yellow Fungi

These fungi look similar to coral. They open with moisture and stay tightly closed when dry
