AbstractThis article covers the author’s experiences over many years, with invertebrates in general and with the spectacular and enigmatic Leichhardt’s Grasshopper (Petasida ephippigera) (Orthoptera: Pyrgomorphidae) in particular. It recalls her initial introduction to CSIRO, then employment with this organisation in Kakadu National Park, then ‘falling for’ Petasida ephippigera, and finally her own studies on it at Davidson’s Arnhem Land Safaris on the Cooper Creek system at Mount Borradaile. Many questions flow on from these initial observations, particularly the relationship between this insect and fire.
