Sunset At 12,000 Ft.

A fabulous sight from our seat on the last leg of a very long roundabout flight to Cairns!

Something Different.

I just like it ......


A bit of entertainment for us.

Night Pool.

This is from our hotel room looking across at the Casino pool.

A Few Boats.

This is a very small section of the marina.

Cairns Sunrise.

We're back after a noisy overdose of people!

Red-Bodied Swallowtail.

We're heading to the city for a few days, and hopefully I'll have some different photos to hang when we get back.

Tropical Rain.

Play Time.

The kids here love the rain!
We're getting very little rain compared to the poor people down south.

Another Kookaburra.

This fella was a lot closer than the last one and I didn't have to use the tele lens.

Another Butterfly.

This is a real nature blog at present, but there's so many amazing creatures around here.

Local Lorikeet.

I'm still confined to barracks at the moment ...... there should be a relief nurse here tomorrow so I can have some days off ......... I can then venture a little further afield than the neighbours trees ...

Another Sort Of Grasshopper.


I think I have the name right, but this one doesn't have a strong fragrance at all.

I can waste hours watching these galahs.
