BUG...NATURE'S ARTWORK (CROPPED UP CLOSE) by 


We took a drive out to Wirrimbirra Sanctuary yesterday and I came across this bug. Take a look at the colours and the artwork on his back….looks like Ken Done has attacked him! I could not believe how beautiful this bug was….he really is nature’s artwork. I have never seen one of these before and I was just gob smacked when I saw it sitting there. He should be in an art gallery!

    this is an amazing image … so vibrant ..

    I think it is a Eucalyptus Tip Bug – in the nymph form – they are more colourful when young … They are also known as Gumtree Bugs …

    They are members of the true bug order – Heteroptera.

    Thanks Jocelyn…and yes, it is a Eucalyptus Tip Bug…I’ve since looked it up. It’s a shame once they get to adult they turn a dull brownish colour.
