A common bird on the Daintree river , but one of the most amazing fishing birds. This birds can fish from a spot quite far above the water and hang upside stretch their neck out and successfully catch a fish. When first observed no one can believe they can fish from that height. To watch them go totally upside down is absolutely amazing.

Grape hawk #6 reared

25 June 2017:

I am trying to learn how to tell the small annual invasion of similar but (I suspect) different hawk moth caterpillars on my grapevine apart. Today I collected #6 of my experiment.

22 July 2017:

The caterpillar spun a loose cocoon among bits of frass and food plant at the bottom of its tub.

5 September 2017:

Adult moth emerged.

Come dusk, we were treated to Firebeetles flying around all evening. Surprisingly they were equally happy over the water as on the river bank.
Not many - only 5-6 visible at a time.
