The East coast of Australia has had some severe storms of late.
This video shows the extent of the sea foam washed ashore.
Its maximum depth was a little over 2 meters and was positioned over sand on the beach above the waterline.
Its a strange sensation being encased in a sea of windblown foam, with an idea of what it would be like pictured below. Keep in mind that we are standing on dry beach. :)

I would like to thank Jasmine Hall from onlineclasses.org for sending me some great links under the heading " 12 coolest TED talks for nature lovers".
The talks are well worth viewing and so I have decided to include them for your enjoyment.
Below is a sample of what the link has to offer.
The following video is from a talk on Bees by Dennis vanEngelsdorp and makes compelling viewing.

Today I was lucky enough to photograph a reasonably large Stick Insect.
They seemed fairly common when I was younger, not so now.
Perhaps I spent more time looking. :)
It was interesting to note the vertically arranged mouth parts, enabling easy shredding of leaves.
The plant being consumed is a Black Wattle
Having never seen a Stick Insect feeding, this was a great photographic opportunity for me to capture one of natures more interesting and unusual forms in its day to day activities.
