This is merely a test post which will be shortly deleted. I want to see how this whole blog thing looks and works. How about an image now?
Reader: What?! A roach?!
Lily: Yes, this is the sort of thing you'll see here.
Mike discovered this 'roach mamma while digging through the leaf litter at Karawatha Forest. We were both amazed by the bright aquamarine ootheca. Why would an egg case have such spectacular colour? I'll share this photo soon on a citizen science website in the hope of learning more.
