I’m Karl Jones, a researcher in South Australia studying the physiology of aquatic insects, and grasswren populations. When I’m not doing research I head out into our Adelaide Hills backyard to observe the interesting creatures that make our home home, or go into the drier parts of Australia, camping, driving and searching for interesting creatures and landscapes.

This blog is an outlet for my experiences in, and with nature in Australia in its many and varied forms. I hope you enjoy your visit.
