Fantastic scrolling photos across the top of the page this morning...of birds, reptiles and even the occasional animal from the Explorer. Thank you Explorer and EO.
regards,

Heather

Hello

Thanks - the pictures are mainly animals I have encountered (one way or another) in the south west of WA...though the turtle shot is from Ashmore Reef (West Island). Its amazing what you can find out there if you look. Have been to a few places that look a bit barren but with a little effort you can typically track down 15+ types of reptiles, 50 or 60 birds species, 5 to 10 mammals and the odd frog. I think people underestimate what they are camping next to sometimes :)

Some of the photos are a bit blurry ..sorry about that.

Cheers
Greg
I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Greg, the reason that I prefer to camp in a caravan is that I am always afraid that I might be camping next to a snake!

Candace
the blue bird is a male Splendid Fairy-Wren. Found Southern parts of WA, Desert area of NT extending into SA, across to Murray R region bordering SA,Vic & NSW & then extends a wide path up into QLD.

The female is a very plain brown, but both male & female have a beautiful voice.

cheers Sue
