Scribbly-gum bark transformation

The 'scribbles' on the bark of these trees are made by the larvae of tiny moths, which burrow under the bark to feed on the sapwood. Scribbly-gums shed their old bark each year, and when they do so the trails of the larvae can be seen as ‘scribbles’ on the new bark.

About Artist

Keith Horton

I take photos mostly of nature in my area, the Illawarra, south of Sydney in Australia. There's an incredible variety of ecosystems in this area, including rainforests, eucalypt forests and woodlands, heaths, upland and lowland swamps, and coastal sand scrub, to name just a few of the broad categories. So there is always lots to photograph. Many of these ecosystems are under threat, though, so I hope that my photographs can play a role in their preservation.
