This is what I call a bush. They grow in gardens, sometimes just wild in the country or along a river bank and many have pretty flowers.
We do not have water holes, but rivers and our insects keep themselves to themselves: perhaps a spider or a bug.
I just found this one crawling along my table outside and have no idea what it is. It’s a fast mover and you often see them late Summer and Autumn.
Our snakes usually go under the name of worm, so nothing to get worried about.
Otherwise I would love to visit the real Australian bush, but for me it just remains a dream.
