Living in Australia, I consider myself blessed. This massive country contains so many diverse habitats, from desert to rainforest to alpine snowfields and everything in between, as well as beautiful beaches, rivers and lakes. This in turn encourages an abundance of wildlife of all shapes and sizes, many of which can not be found anywhere else on earth.
So, where do you go to find an insect? The simple answer is "anywhere". When the mood takes me, I jump in my car or go for a walk in search of somewhere nice and quiet and then I just start looking. My camera travels with me at all times, even to work. You just never know what might turn up when you least expect it.
If you visit the Landscapes gallery in the Not Bugs page, you will see some of the stunning places I have been lucky enough to set foot in. This may also help you get some idea of the habitat in which many of my specimens have been found.
