Cautionary tale of Sam and Jane

Sam: Yes Jane, put some eggs here, this is a good spot, don't worry I am watching out for you....

...here too, that's right, like they say, don't put all your eggs into one basket.... why of course I am still watching out for that ....

....oops....

....bye Jane....it was fun having you...

While trying to get a good shot of these Bicolored Damseflies Ceriagrion cerinorubellum, I drove them straight into the path of a pouncing Green Paddy frog Rana erythraea.

A cloudy day at SBG.

It started all so beautifully (I won't say innocently)and such a tragic ending. Fantastic photography!

Thanks for your comments Trudi, but I find the flash too harsh in these photos ....need a tripod.

I feel rather inadequate after the first photos but sorry for them all the same after Mr Froggy spied them.

Hi, thanks for your message. I will make some inquires for you. There is also a bloke, Eric on blotanical who grows this plant. I have seen it on his blog. I am not sure if it is the australian one. Here is his url:

I hope this helps you for the moment.

In my area here nobody has or sells seed of this plant. You could try cairns and cooktown botanical gardens. Here are the e-mails:
gardens@cairns.qld.gov.au

botanic_gardens@cook.qld.gov.au

I am sure one of them will be able to sell you seed. Generally they are very helpful with requests.
