We all had a wonderful time last Saturday with Wendy Roberts from Reef Watch/Melbourne Museum. Thank you Wendy, your input was wonderful, there have been many inspired conversations and ideas that your presentation has generated. As well as great images, Wendy also brought us some sponge samples to have a look at. Nature really is incredible with the variety of colours, shapes & textures, the more you look the more you find! One of the highlights was an image taken under a microscope showing the cell structure - you could hear oooh's all around the room as it look just like a piece of crochet. More food for thought.
