Insects and Little things

We may be out here to look at orchids but the occasional small animal or insect has caught our attention, particularly if said insects happen to be marching across the path (first 2 photos), as was the case with the ants! The third photo is what we think is a flying ant, although their flight is a little erratic, leading to numerous collisions with peoples heads, the caterpillar is one of many that we’ve seen, all just as hairy. There have been quite a few frogs, although its possible that they have been harder to get pictures of than the butterflies due to their rapid jumping, normally just as you take to picture. The final photo is of a particularly large and dramatic blue butterfly that we spotted in the swamps, although there have been literally hundreds of butterflies about.
