Mark it is great to think you are going to post...and hope you can share some of the huge variety of insects. (You can keep the spiders for yourselves though )

I understand Australia has more than 400 species of butterfly, 320 of dragon and damselflies, and 200 of stick insects so I hope you can show us what you have in your garden!

As a teenager I procured some eggs of a giant stick insect from Aus. It was meant to eventually grow to 10 inches long, but, mine did not live long enough. We didn't have the heat it needed. Eurycnema goliath - should anyone wish to look it up. I understand it is pretty common.

So thanks for joining in.
