Re: Manual Focus Nikon Glass


Thanks for the likes/comments guys. The eggs are apparently from bugs of the order Hemiptera (True bugs, aphids, hoppers etc.).

As I may have mentioned, we are re-planting our garden with native plants and placing particular emphasis on plants that birds and butterflies use as food plants. We have had a couple of female Cairns Birdwing Butterflies in the garden recently for the first time which is pretty cool.

They have a wingspan of up to 18cm ! They are particular to lay eggs and feed on a type of vine so we have some of those.

Here is the caterpillar - they are up to 10cm and fat (up to 1 inch diameter) !!! They have "horns" that they inflate out of a slot in the front of their head when threatened. They are seen here half inflated.
