The Beauty of the Living and the Dead – Photography

Ants are out in large numbers and many types.

I enjoy this time of the year in Queensland because the bush is full of interesting creatures, both live dead and ones. The garden transforms into a photography playground for me. Not everyone likes insects, I know. Here are some interesting shapes, colours and types of things I found through the lens. My son Chris took the grasshopper shot.

I love these mustard mushrooms – they are creeping out of the dead gum leaves.
