Sub Station Poles.


Sunrise the other day from our verandah.

A Few More Galahs.


There was close to a hundred in the trees where we stayed, the noise was deafening, but they're still lovable little creatures.

Merry Christmas.


A used bicycle tree we saw in the middle of nowhere.

From The Lookout.


Another view of the large, hot countryside.

Camels ......


..... on the horizon, on an overcast morning.

Life's Tough!


What more can I say ........

Close To The Simpson Desert.


Man it was hot, in fact too hot for the flies.

Happy Chappies.


Galahs are some of the happiest birds around and I can waste a lot of time just watching them.

Cowboy Country.


These boots and hat were in the back of someone's 4WD.

Watch The Pips....


... It's not safe to leave food lying around these parts with all the flies around here.

Kestral.


The pole he is standing on is an old telephone pole with the copper wire still attached.

Ibis' Flying.


These are quite ugly, ungainly birds, but elegant when flying.

A Country Pub.


This place takes you back in time.

Hard To Spot.


Crocs do look like pieces of wood, and definitely best viewed from a distance!

Tree Reflections.


This is a photo I took last wet season, as it's still too hot to have the camera out at present.

Going, Going, Gone ....




I'm not sure where he found this piece of meat, but it didn't last long.

Too Hot For Camera.

 We're having 41 to 43°C days at present and my camera doesn't seem to want to work, so it will be very light on photos for a few days.

Tonight's Moon Through Trees.



I couldn't decide which one, so I've uploaded both.

Emu Chick.


So beautiful, so quick, and so short on brain cells.

Life ......


........ everything has to eat ......

Saturday, 24 November 2012

Up Close.


I've cropped this from an earlier pic to get a closer view.

I'm not able to identify this one yet, but will keep looking.

Another Sunrise.


This morning's sun rising.

The Outback Hilton....


...... found in the middle of nowhere ......

Outback Shed.


This is way out west in Queensland, quite close to the Simpson Desert.

Foal.


This foal is only 8 weeks old, and I reckon it's going to be a beautiful horse. Not that I know anything about horses, they scare me, and I've had virtually nothing to do with them all my life.

Sun Rays.


An overcast morning from The Great Dividing Range, after our first lot of rain in months.

Thursday, 8 November 2012

Common Australian Crow.



This is one of the many varieties of butterflies we have around at present, and the only one that has stayed still long enough to capture.

The Other Cat.


This one is not as photogenic as the other feral cat, but it does have a nicer personality.

Friday, 2 November 2012

A Bee.


This is one of those bees that tend to hover and fly at right angles.

Tuesday, 30 October 2012

Smiley Frog.


I could keep taking photos of these guys, I think they're beautiful.

Monday, 29 October 2012

Half Mating Display.


This poor fella was all alone, there was a heap of Bustards further up the road, such a shame we couldn't tell him or drop him off.

Saturday, 27 October 2012

Sprinkler.


Flooding the garden in the afternoon sun.

Thursday, 25 October 2012

Ugly Bug.


I have no idea what this is, it was on the aircon unit at work the other night.

Tuesday, 23 October 2012

Another Eagle.


I was about 80m away from this guy and I'm delighted with my new camera and the quality at this range.

Friday, 19 October 2012

Tonight's Sunset.


There is a lot of dust in the air at present, thanks to the wind and no rain for many weeks.

Tuesday, 16 October 2012

Here They Come.


This was the cattle drive arriving at a friends property after about 20km on the move.

Sunset Last Night.


This is looking over our front fence as the sun went down, unfortunately the kids on trail bikes didn't show up.

Thursday, 11 October 2012

Frog Season.


I'm so delighted to be living in an area where these frogs live. They were out and about last night since we had our first thunder and lightning this season.

High Rise Living.


I liked the colours and shapes of these buildings with the sun on it in the morning.

Saturday, 29 September 2012

Cooling Off.


It was 38° C with no wind, even the Hawks needed to cool off.

Rainbow Bee- Eater.




These birds have such beautiful colours in the light, unfortunately the sun was too far down when we came across them.

Tuesday, 25 September 2012

Another Hawk.


The sun was directly behind, hence the pale background, which I quite like.

Monday, 24 September 2012

Bath Time.



This Honeyeater is an unknowing guinea pig for me trying out the different settings on my new camera.

Saturday, 22 September 2012

White-plumed Honeyeater.



These delightful little birds are a great source of exercise for the photographer, you need to have great eye sight, be quick at spotting, focusing and hitting the button to capture them!!
