Catterpillar on Arum Lilly @ Highfields

This photo was taken while at Highfields, South-East Queensland on an Arum Lily Plant.

Arum lily is a robust, dark green, succulent herb, also known as Calla or White arum lily. It was
introduced to WA from South Africa as a garden plant and subsequently escaped to become established
as a weed. It is found in creeks, irrigation ditches and areas of summer-moist land in the higher rainfall
south west of Western Australia, often forming large dense clumps. Arum lily competes with valuable
perennial pasture plants on summer land.(Source:  http://www.agric.wa.gov.au/objtwr/imported_assets/content/pw/gard/buddies1010.pdf)

Green Tree Frog at Highfields 06/10/2005


While living at Highfields, South-East Queesland, my young son spotted this "green tree frog" on the wheelie bin at our suburban home.  He was used to me taking photos of everything that moved, so I took this photo for him
