It was the first time I'd seen both parents, there had only been the male and the two young ones previously.
Photo isn't great as it was overcast, 1600iso and a lens full of fungi isn't great for sharpness.

I had no idea that racoons were native Australian animals. Where are they found ?
I saw this last night on my fence :

with at least another 4 was having a great time racing about.

Removing some arum lilies around the side of the house…. They keep self-propagating :evil:

Found this handsome fella, I’ve left some lilies and a water dish for the time being. We are currently isolating, if I can find him again post-iso I’ll move him to the river. Once our yard dries up in a month or so it won’t be a great environment. Not to mention the Jack Russell .

Blue Tongue sm.jpg
Seen near my backdoor during intermittent showers 2 weeks ago. I'm hoping he is eating the snails.

I was moving some old building materials yesterday and disturbed a gecko.
So today I got some old and broken tiles and made a gecko habitat to hang on the fence. Fence faces the setting sun so even in winter it should warm up enough to allow warming up to hunting temperature
Ve are too soon old und too late schmart
