Grasshopper.


This makes a change from all the bird pics recently.

Back Blocks of Coen.


It was so nice being able to go for a longer drive early this morning and not have to take the work phone with me.

Christmas Hat ......


Well, that's what it looks like and it is Christmas after all .......
I love the expression on the Blue-Faced Honeyeater, they certainly come alive with the rain. The background in this pic is the monsoon rain.

Merry Christmas Everyone.



Thank you to everyone who has supported me and my site, I do hope that Santa's kind to you all :)
I haven't had much time to be out and about with my camera lately, hopefully soon.

Yesss ..... Finally!


This beautiful Papillio Ulysses (Blue Emperor or Blue Mountain Swallowtail), finally stopped long enough for me to photograph, it's been taunting me for weeks!!
The colours are magnificent in bright sunshine.

Local Graffiti.


I found this in the local airstrip waiting room.
I'm not sure why I like this, maybe the colours?

A pic of downtown Coen from our back doorstep as the storm cell approached. We've had very little rain over the last week, but it looks like my first time off in ten days are going to be wet ones .....

A Stork.


This was found lurking up near the Archer River a couple of weeks ago. I'm not getting much of a chance to get out + about at present as I'm the only RN for 3 to 500 people. There has been a spot of bother with my holiday relief nurse....... they're flying in a nurse every 7 t0 8 days to give me 2 days off and a break from being on call ....... and to have a much needed beer!!!!!

First Ever Lightning!!


How exciting!!!!! I've never managed to capture lightning before ....... but ...... I won't be divulging how many shots it took me to capture this ......
This is a hand held shot, as I hadn't set up the tripod.

Nest Building.


I'm not sure whether these are ants or termites. They do grow some very large ants that bite over here!
