Barry - The Brown Bullant!
This shot is best viewed Large!
Hi everybody! This is my new friend Barry - The Brown Bullant. A.K.A. Myrmecia Pyriformis
Although he's not on the best angle in this particular shot, his body measures in at a very healthy 28mm, or 1.1 inches long!
To cut a long story short, I first met Barry running [rather quickly] across my kitchen floor, so I carefully scooped him up into an old tupperware container - which has become his new temporary home - until I finally had a chance to take him outside and try taking some photos of him.
Unfortunately he's a very fiesty little fellow, so I've been finding it hard to get any decent pictures of him. This is my first attempt - so the results aren't brilliant - but they're not a bad start. I'm hoping that I'll be able to get some better photos sometime soon!
