First a CORRECTION! That's a blackbead tree that Judy approaches to find the thornbugs on, not an acacia. (thanks Dave)
Thanks to Sarah Falkowski and David Graff for showing us the thornbugs at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and for inviting us down to speak at their excellent Southwest Florida Nature Festival. Thanks to all of the staff and volunteers at the Reserve who make it a wonderful natural learning experience. Stop in to their Learning Center on your next trip to Florida. Here's a really interesting article about these great bugs in Natural History Magazine.
NASA's Worldwind and Visible Earth make the Earth come alive. Thanks NASA!

Little Nature Show has a Little Nature Shop now! Really... : )
It's not a very big shop yet, but it's got some unnecessary yet fun items like this Thornbug Mug. Celebrate Little Nature Show stars like the Thornbugs, Hope the Whimbrel, and that lovable Timberdoodle every time you sip your coffee or put on your t-shirt. Click here to support our show by buying some stuff!
