Holly, Matt, Julian and Wibi headed out to the tall wet forest of Victoria's Central Highlands this week.
They finished deploying remote cameras at sites established to better understand how biodiversity varies among patches of different time since fire, and where data are available, fire severity.
They avoided the heavy rain of Tuesday 7th but not the oncoming traffic. Highlights included blue mushrooms and a 20-cm worm. This sounds like the product of hallucinations but they've provided photographic evidence.
Please let us know if you can ID the mushrooms.
