And to take the photo of the Croc I had to make sure this feller wasn't near by , he's also in the paddock in front of my Van .

Hi Doug,

I doubt anyone can top that! That has to be the best front and back yard shots I've seen. Have to be careful mowing!

Kind regards

Nice piccies Doug!

How's the Wet shaping up this year? We lived in Darwin from 1981 to 1984 and only had one real good Wet season. There were plenty of wild buffalo roaming around the Mary River and just about everywhere really. I believe they were mostly eradicated in the Brucollisis clean-up. Those in your picture must be privately owned I reckon.

I remember being camped at Annabaroo Billabong and hearing the buffs crashing through the bush and salties could be seen in the river; funny enough the wife and kids were more bothered by the mosquitoes!

The wife & kids had something there Kingo
Mosquitoes have been involved in a lot more deaths in Australia than buffalo, crocodiles & snakes put together.
Around the world I think mosquito born diseases, mainly malaria, kill more people than any other diseases.
I still would rather take on a mossie than one of Dougs lizards though.

Fatso says he would rather the mozzies than my little mate out there in the pond, well that little fella stays out there, he don't come in my van like the damn Mozzies looking for me,
And my obsevations tell me that us Humans must be the most grotesque site on Earth, have you noticed how a Wallaby will not take off in panic if a sheep ,horse, or bird gets near it, I noticed the Magpie Geese recently did not move when the horses got too close , but as soon as a human gets near them they take off, Wallaby's bound of in fright, and that little Croc has never seen a human in his life but as soon as I stood up he threw himself into the water, and yet I noticed the other day it didn't move when the Buffalo were near and a half dozen geese flew right over the top of the pond, they will stay if a car pulls up, but get out and they're gone.

Trouble is that by the time most Southerners get up here all the action has finished , the water dries up and the little Croc has to move, the grass goes dry and brown, The storms just don't happen and it's just like a drought.

Just before the sun set this afternoon the situation out my front window had changed , we had of course our little Croc hiding in the water but he had other company , Wallaby's, Buffalo, Peacock,Magpie Geese, Plubber, and to the left out of the photo was a large white crane, and also out there and unseen all around here are millions of baby Cane Toads around thumb nail size.
