    A few Central Coast Leagues Club competition winning photos taken by my friend Paul Henson. The photo of the bee was “A-grade colour print, judges choice”. Zoom in on the droplets and you’ll see the flowers from the background.

    Sometimes you need to look down to see what nature has taken a millennia to create, such as a small section of rocks at South West Rocks, other times you need to look up to see what only occurs once in a millennia such as a comet reflected in a salt lake in northern Victoria. Other times it is how we interact with whats around us.
    A few random pic.
    Cheers

    Truly thread worthy Steve;). Thanks for the contribution:D. Nature is like that TV add where the little girl says "it's around us all the time...it's just what we choose to see".

    Something you don't see every day a spider that builds a net and uses it between it's front feet to catch is dinner. They called net casting spiders.

    Dinner looks like a razor blade protector;). What was he going to eat?

    They eat anything they can catch! that razor blade protector is the net (web) they use to catch dinner with they throw it over a passing insect. Like natives do catching fish by throwing a net out and pull in there catch.

    So the razor blade (net) provides impetus (inertia) to the web they have woven as they throw it over the prey? Clever buggers;). Great photo & truly thread worthy:D.
    Cheers
