Nettle bed safari

If you look closely enough, you can see that the nettles are beginning to flower. If you look even closer you will find a whole miniature ecosystem living in the nettle bed: sap suckers, nectar feeders, predators and terrifying creatures that hunt the predators.

Here are some of the inhabitants of the nettle beds near the park’s entrance.
