Went back to uni today to start on my PhD! This didn’t leave me much time for micrographs, but I found this exotic Gilia capitata (Polemoniaceae) in my front yard and brought it in. I love the anthers.
Facial detail of a live moth, hatched from the seeds of an Acacia plant after 20 days. This is the moth whose dust I showed you on Monday. Look at that super cool proboscis and the cute puff of scales on its head, aww!
This is the dust that comes from the wings of a moth, made of scales from the wings and body. This moth hatched out of the seeds of an Acacia species collected from Springwood, Sydney, and I have more.
