wildlife photos - show us what you got

Recommended Posts

We spent a few days in Bunya Mountains area and saw some good wildlife.

Best moment was what we think is a common tree snake swallowing a tree frog.

We also saw a red belly black snake, a few goannas - one of which was up a tree being swooped by a carrawong.

... then we has a couple of days by the beach in Caloundra.

We watched three ospreys from our balcony, one caught a fish and tucked in on the beach right in front of us, so we went down to watch up close

Hey - no fair - you guys live in a zoo !! I'm just a city slicker. Really excited with the first goanna, but after 3 or 4 you get used to it.

Seriously though, its incredible really. Just a shame they all want to bite, sting or eat you !

Keep 'em coming

Nice to see the reptiles in nature where they belong not kept in cages by idiots that like looking at them.

Ajuvenile great crested tern. I gave it a piece of pilchard and it came close enough to touch.
