As with most of my posts, you can click on an image, and if a larger format is available, you’ll see it.
These photos were taken over the past few weeks or so, but I don’t think all of them have been put up here. So we’ll start with some birds. The first photo is what I thought were a pair of juvenile Yellow Orioles. However, after consulting my ‘Slater’s’ field guide, they appear to be more like juvenile Olive-Backed Orioles.
The reason I thought they may have been young Yellows is because we have an adult Female that hangs around here.
I also found a Bar-Shouldered Dove in the trees. I think I spooked it though.
Here is a Grasshopper exoskeleton, left behind when it moulted. Plus, a wee little spider, and a huge Emperor or Atlas moth.
Oh, and here are a couple more random photos. When it gets below about 23 degrees celsius, we light the fire. Actually, sometimes we light it in the Wet Season to try and dry the air out a bit. Humidity can be 90+ percent for days on end. On very still mornings, the smoke from the chimney falls down the bottom paddock. It gets pretty smokey until the fire begins to burn properly.
