Wyaga Creek

On the way home from Goondiwindi we had a rest stop at Wyaga Creek crossing on the Gore Highway, in between Goondi & Millmerran. Little birds could be heard in the trees, busy chirping despite the light rain. Wyaga creek is crossed three times while driving between Millmerran and Goondiwindi, it was very picturesque despite heavy debris from previous floodwaters some time ago. There were new shaded picnic tables and not too much highway noise.  (Iphone6 photos)

Four-coloured Milk Bugs at Geham

At first glance, I thought these clumps of Orange on this plant at Geham, South-East Queenslsnd, were berries or tiny flowers, but closer inspection showed them to be many tiny vibrant orange beetles.  I looked them up when I got home and found these tiny beetles to be juvenile "Four Coloured Milk Vine Bugs"  (4-Coloured Milk Vine Bug - Oncopeltus sordidus).  (Iphone6 photos)
