Creature Gallery 10 July 2023 – A winter trip to the beach at Eden

After finishing the studies for the semester, I went to Eden in New South Wales and hiked the beaches and mountains.

Winter’s a good time – there’s a lot going on but the weather was comfortable and it wasn’t crowded. Dress appropriately.

It was disturbing to see the melted signs and trail markers, having been left in the forest since 2019.

A couple of photos from my university trip to Townsville, the Governor’s Castle on Coronation Day, and I finally made it to the top of Flinders Peak!

PS Hans Modrow has passed away. I am too young to have any idea of what he did whilst in office, but I saw his photo every time I Googled the code for alternating colour shading in Excel…

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.

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.

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.
