RIVER SHEOAK, MOTHS & BEES
Standing tall yet flexible along the Riverbank preventing destructive soil erosion is the river sheoak casuarina cunninghamiana. Each year the flowering male tree turn a rusty brown attracting Bees Apis Meellifera to their pollen load. Female Tree flash small red flowers developing into spikey seed cones upon pollination by bee or wistful wind. The wiry leaves and twigs of the tree house and feed the eggs of Sheoak Moths pernattia pusilla the eventual caterpillar cocoons sparsely decorated with hair from their own body hang off branches like lanterns.
