The Moth and The Bat

A Cautionary Tale from the Pandemic.

The lockdown was an opportunity to try to make sense of the message that Nature is trying to send us. I noticed that most of the bushwalks around my suburb of Earlwood were taken over by increasing numbers of people, escaping their homes, seeking to connect with nature. What exactly were they seeking? The reserve at Wolli Creek is home to a large number of species. This work was inspired by the creature and the plants I see there.

There is always a dilemma…. how should humans negotiate their space in Nature? What happens when the balance in this relationship is disturbed? We never seem to learn. Nature gives, but she takes back!
