This male Megachile bee roosted on the same stem of a particular Allocasuarina every evening. Photo 2, taken from underneath him, shows his fancy front feet. Might be Megachile ferox - not sure.
I believe these to be ladybird eggs, probably Harmonia conformis. The Allocasuarina trees had a lot of those ladybirds in various stages at the time.
These 2 photos were taken 2 hours apart. The yellow "creature" became recognizable as a pupa in that time. It is pictured on an Allocasuarina.

On Acacia melanoxylon (Blackwood).
Brief survey of butterflies and their larva with Ross Field.
These two caterpillars are both thought to be T. lutea but this is not known for sure. They were found by myself and Ross Field and preliminary ID by Ross.
Both were on Lomandra filiformis subsp. coriacea, about 500m apart on the rail reserve.
This is a final stage nymph. This katydid nymph was eating the crowea flower.
On a 1.5m tall Acacia melanoxylon (Blackwood) - their host plant at this location.
