Not a hoverfly, definitely a Bee fly (family Bombyliidae), not sure about the species. Super cute though!

Nice! And a good haul of Pleistodontes froggatti in those macrophylla fruits. Did you see any parasitoids?

If you’re at all interested in honey bees, and also kind of fancy a legendary larrikin and killer academic as a boss, you really can’t pass this up.

Yeah, that's my poor knuckle. Fortunately the mandibles aren't too bad, it's the formic acid they spray into the wound that packs a punch.

Very cool. I love how it exploits the contractile forces of silk as it dries to roll the leaf over. Leaf-curling spiders utilise the same phenomenon.

The size, shape and gait of giraffes never ceases to blow my mind. Such an unbelievable animal. The only one on the planet that you have to take down like an AT-AT.
