I don't like humans enough to comment on the first picture, but do like the second. Often I wish stills came with background sounds, possibly scents stolen from that moment....of course other pictures they are fine as they are. :)


You keep mentioning cold, but I see no snow, no frost. Where is this cold you speak of :P

Supposed to get a foot of snow in Oz today, in the parts that do snow that is, wherever that is but not here, this is the warrrrm spot.  ;) ;)

Spotted some 'roos having a little stoush, couldn't get any closer though, they can sense you a mile off.  ;)


Seen one emu to the left and this one come from the right. Brett said it was like a road runner moment, Old Man Emu hit the skids real hard, we missed him thank goodness.

There would have been two screeches, had I seen that spider. One from me, one from the car tires as I sped away :)

Like FF, I would have had to stick around and take pictures.  ;)

How could you not? You don't see something like that every day. 8)

FF - I always enjoy the picts from your travels, but I have to say, those including water make me ache to be there. And the Roos - Fantastic.

And I am glad enough not to have to see one such as this everyday.

I shall rely on the bravado of others. :)

 :D :D

I love the water too Alice, don't like to touch it or any such thing but I do love to look at it, something very calming about water isn't there.

Spiders are a great source of enjoyment for me with the camera, I don't like to get too close, just observe from afar is fine, zoom is my friend.  ::)

Silt I'm not brave, the opposite really, just enjoy watching them, amazing creatures though. We don't kill them at our place, they eat too many bugs to be rid of them.  ;D

If we found a Funnel Web, I might feel a bit differently about that unless I could catch it and take it to the anti venom people. They milk them apparently. Must have way way little milking machines ay. >:D

Great pics, FF.

I, too, would simply have had to photograph the spider.  :D I can see how you'd prefer the zoom lens with this fella, but my favourite when photographing bugs is my macro lens. The hard part is getting something into the pic so that you have that perspective, so people can tell how large or small your subject is.  I don't think I'd be reaching my hand into the shot to place a coin or anything on the branch beside this guy, though!!  :o Eeek.

Hey Woody, nice to see you mate.  :D

I have to get a macro lens I think, would make a big difference to some of the close ups.  ;)

In Darwin now so thought I would post a few more pictures  :D

Every day has to end with Happy Hour by the campfire. I was sooo artistic with this shot.  :P


The birdlife was amazing at this camp on the banks of the Georgina River just inside the Queensland border.


I'm not sure who the leader is here.  :D :D
