Day 3 - Bugs, Spiders and Sweeping

Today I worked with Mark (an arachnologist) and Nik (an entomologist). Once again we jumped on the helicopter and headed to our first site. The helicopter landed on a small rock space and Mark headed off to a patch of Melaleucas to search leaf litter for spiders and I stayed to help Nik search for true bugs (these have sucking mouth-parts) in the surrounding river area.
