Arthropods

The three images below are of members of the phylum Arthropoda seen on a walk organised by the Australian Native Plants Society. I suggest click on the image to get a better look at these quite pretty beasts.
This colourful beast was enjoying the view on one of our strawberry plants. I
didn't whup it at once (which I will probably regret when we find the strawberry patch - which has gone feral - all gets eaten).
The Don King look spreads to eucalypt munching caterpillars. It was about 9cm long!
