Brand New Monarch Butterfly.

The wings still have folds in them and they take about 3 hours to dry.

Outback Friends.

These interesting old men were happy for me to take their photo, and it's close to twenty years old now.

Flooded Creek Crossing.

Some of these crossings are quite picturesque, but a pain in the neck when you have places to go, and have to wait for the creeks to go down before you drive through.

New Alpaca.

Meet Abraham, he's the first male born into this family of alpacas, and he's quite a fun character already.

Monday, 12 March 2018

Outback Airstrip.

Air Med arriving to evacuate someone sick. These strips are not used in the wet season, as you can imagine they turn to mud fairly quickly.

Sunday, 11 March 2018

Fuscia Flower.

This was a miniature fuscia  and I think it's more elegant than the larger one.

Thistle Down.

Thistle flowers are beautiful until the air is filled with millions of them.

A Bumble Bee.

It's interesting trying to photograph bees in "their quiet moment", as they are always on the go.

The Spider + The Locust..

Isn't nature fascinating. It seems that spiders will accept any sized meal.

Saturday, 3 March 2018

Young Sparrow.

They look better all puffed up like this.

Number 29.

I liked this building,  but only the lower section, so I cropped the top off and converted it to black + white.

Tuesday, 27 February 2018


Interesting insects and great subjects as they tend to stay still for some time.

Monarch Emerging.

How lucky was this beautiful find!

Friday, 23 February 2018

Paper Mill.

This looked quite eerie with the steam and being late afternoon on an overcast day.

More Easter Hats.

This was taken close to 15 years ago on an Aboriginal community. It is best enlarged to see the delight on the kids faces as they were proud of their efforts and they loved having their photos taken.

Easter Hats.

The kids were very proud of their hats and showing them off.

Saturday, 17 February 2018

Wild Horses.

Known as brumbies in outback Australia, and are sometimes seen in large numbers.

Thursday, 15 February 2018

Galaxy In A Frypan.

I sprayed some oil into a frypan, and I was delighted with the result.

Monarch Butterfly Profile.

It's lovely to see a striped caterpillar evolve into a beautiful butterfly.

Friday, 9 February 2018

Another Monarch Caterpillar.

I've been practicing again with an old camera of mine since my favourite one just died, very sad.

Wednesday, 7 February 2018

Alpaca Catch Up.

It was good to see that their beautiful coats had regrown, as I don't think they suit being fleece free.

Tuesday, 6 February 2018

Monarch Butterfly Mates.

Quite amazing the things you see when you start checking the garden. These two were together for a very long time, and the wings were closed as there were other butterflies around.

Golden Light.

Such a beautiful evening light.

Friday, 2 February 2018

Monarch Caterpillar Killer.

I finally found what was paralysing the caterpillars, and caught it in action. It looks like it has an ?appendage that pierces them, not just one, but quite a few in an area of the plant.

Thursday, 1 February 2018

Baby Magpie.

It's so delightful coming to the back door for something to eat,  talking and singing to us, and we don't get swooped.

Monday, 29 January 2018

Approaching Storm.

This one bought a lot of hail, rain, thunder, lightning and wind and the temperature at least remained beautifully warm.

Sunday, 28 January 2018

Flying Ant.

I have seen many of these on my flowering plants, they fly in and they zip around the the plant.

Friday, 26 January 2018

Baby Alpaca.

One whole day old, yet so well composed.

Tuesday, 23 January 2018

Top 'N Tail.

The caterpillar behind the leaf had its back legs stuck up in the air for ages. I like the little bit of it's head and an antenna poking out either side at the end of the leaf.

Monday, 22 January 2018

A Fly.

I'm surprised how many flies are on the swan plants, it often looks as if they are collecting pollen as well.

Saturday, 20 January 2018

Picky Eater.

Unusual to see any leaf left after a caterpillar has claimed it.

Friday, 19 January 2018

Monarch Butterfly.

I'm so delighted to see these fellas around, the most I've seen in a long while.

Wednesday, 17 January 2018

Old House And Shed.

I visited this place a fairly often at various times of the day, it changed so much and there was always a lot of wildlife around.

Monday, 15 January 2018

A Dawn.

This is close to the Queensland and Central Australian border by the Simpson Desert.

Saturday, 13 January 2018


These certainly aren't the brightest birds at all, in fact it's quite frightening as to how dumb they are.

Friday, 12 January 2018

A Galah Or Two.

Imagine another four or six trees with double this amount of galahs (this is only half the tree), and the noise they would make with their chatter and bird song.

Wednesday, 10 January 2018

Chive Flower.

They are quite beautiful flowers up close.

Monday, 8 January 2018

White Gladioli.

Such beautiful flowers and colours.

Saturday, 6 January 2018


Not the best looking birds on the block, but interesting.

Thursday, 4 January 2018


One of my favourite creatures, and I'm always amazed at the interesting places they seem to pop up.

Misty Morning.

I like seeing the hills peeping through the mist. It's a shame there wasn't more colour to it.
