In what promises to be one of the most amazing invertebrate blogs ever, Dr David Walter has begun blogging at Macromite. From the introductory post:
“This blog will be devoted to mites and mite art. My original Mite Image Gallery was hosted by the University of Queensland until I left there in 2003. Since then it has been lying dormant on a variety of computers in a much colder land. Many of my images continue to be available on the web (e.g. in interactive keys) and, if you are fortunate enough to live in Australia, you may have seen some of them at the recent Ornamentamology exhibit created by the Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group Queensland, but amazingly, there doesn’t seem to be a site devoted to appreciating the often bizarre beauty of the Acari. Now there is.”
