How do you manage to capture them on camera they are always too fast for me, just like the Ulysses butterfly

 

Wait!

 

Or...

 

Put the sprinkler hose on and they will come for a 'shower'. Then...

 

wait.

 

The Ulysses butterfly...red hoya flowers.

Looked at some earlier pix and note that you have red hoya...Cerberus's photos.

First turtle tracks of the breeding season. Big Momma went up (rhs), laid and came back (lhs), via a twirly bit.

Yesterday I was calling pussy cat for his dinner and the resident currawong arrived instead- so I gave him some fruit bread. Same thing again today- clever bird must know the call. He is like the magpies and eyeballs you through the window when he is hungry.

I've had a pet crow, I never put it into the cage inside, and later it grew up, and flew away

Another session off the rocks this morning. Big Clarrie the cod eyeing off my 85 cm black tip reef shark.

Got the shark up, measured it then cut the line and relesed it back to fend for itself.

Anything our big pussy cat doesn't eat, I put out for the possum who has lived in the garage roof for many years. Last night I looked out and there were 2 big hairy bums side by side- pussy and possum eating the remains together!

A young turtle seeking weed to eat. That is a mangrove seed next to him and down in the depths lurks Big Clarrie!

First snake in 'winter'; a harmless tree snake. The warm weather has started to bring them out. Yep, almost trod on it...
