A Sunset.

I thought it was time to have a change from the all the wild life pics. We're waiting for the wet season to arrive so we can see, and hopefully capture some great lightning displays.

These were at a beautiful croc - free river, where we even went paddling. They have such intricately patterned wings.

Mud Crab.

Low tide at Port Stewart was a fascinating place. These crabs are small, but have only one very large orange claw.

Mud Skipper.

It was fun watching these scoot around the mud and the water at Port Stewart yesterday.

Archer River Causeway.

A really beautiful area, which was covered by 2m of water not long after we left there and after it had rain for a couple of hours.

Yellow Bird.

I'm still trying to find the official name for this one ........
I have just found out this is a sunbird, more info here

Country Airstrip.

This is a private cattle station airstrip, which is being used until the main strip is rebuilt. We had to drive around it to make sure there were no cattle lurking. The raised bits are ant hills.

Dopey Emu.

This fella was also wondering around the Hahn River Roadhouse. I love the idiotic grin.

This beautiful bird is a pet of the owners at Hahn River Roadhouse.

Sunday Arvo.

We were 13 floors up, and looking down at the drinkers.....

Aussie Landscape.

This was taken out the car window, one very hot sticky afternoon driving in north Queensland.
