It’s been a long time between updates!

Travel restrictions have made it very difficult to go diving or hiking in gnarly places. However, we have seen some pretty random stuff on some local travels. Here are some of the highlights.


This week’s creatures – 3 April 2021 – Moogerah wanderings

We have been working hard and getting out has been difficult in the last few weeks. Here are some of the sights we have seen on our travels.


This week’s creatures – 15 March 2021 – Emus, lizards, devils!

It’s been a long time between posts, and in the interim, I have been focused on a lot of other projects – backyard construction, landscaping, and studies.

The photos below show some of the interesting sights we have seen over the hot Brisbane summer.

This week’s creatures – 30 November 2020 – Baby Currawongs, Koalas, Dragonfly

There’s been a lot going on at the moment, both animal-wise, and project-wise. It’s been difficult to pin down a time to look at the shots!

  • There was an enormous dragonfly sitting on a tree trunk in the yard, waiting for me to get a shot
  • We have had a baby currawong bird (similar to a magpie, but less aggressive) end up in the yard, and it can’t fly. We’ve been giving it water and making sure it’s got shade during the day, and its folks are feeding it.

This week’s creatures – 15 October 2020 – The Red Hill Ski Jump!


We have been seeing a few spiders walking around on the Cootha slopes but it has generally been quiet due to the dryness and lack of rain. Hopefully we will get some proper rainfall in November, which will increase the number of animal appearances!

The road below is one-way due to the crazy steepness… if we get decent snowfall in Brisbane I would strongly endorse that the government builds a ski jump here.
