Thanks for all the pics, keep up the good work. You're living my preferred lifestyle. Bit hard to move bush at present with 2 younguns, with all the amenities and education etc in the city.
Would love to be far away and back out "bush" though, watch out wife when the kids are grown I tell you!

On the subject of "ladybugs" its amazing how many different types there are. Some even have "fur" !!!

Thanks for your comments Browny -We all have to weigh up our priorities and good to see you put your family first. Just so long as you can get those "younguns" out into the Bush as often as you can I'm sure they will grow to enjoy it like you do. My 'Baby boy' is now 33 and lives in a city environment, when he's not chasing the V8 supercars around the country he is out camping - just loves it. A product of what we did when he was growing up. Makes me feel good to see that something rubbed off. :risatonaD:

However I promised (threatened) Snow Photos so here they are from May 3 this year.

Some things are just so darned strange!!!
This morning from our kitchen window checking out the dam which is at most 60M away. First I spotted the small Roo…. Then the Fox just curled up on the dam wall.
Where he was sitting overlooks the overflow of the dam, so my guess is he was waiting for something like a frog perhaps to show itself in the overflow. But he was just curled up there like a domestic dog.
Took a couple of quick ‘snaps’ through the window but when I headed outside to get some better shots the Fox realized he was being watched and skedaddled (He’ll be back :;): and I will have something heavier than a camera in my hands )

I am usually not one for these little plaques But spotted this one at the Japanese Gardens at Cowra (NSW) and liked it.
Pic snapped by my better half yesterday after the snow.

Fresh crisp mornings and wonderful light for some quirky photos (Accidental in most cases)
But great for a peaceful stroll with the dogs before breakfast.

Been doing some burning off around the shack today - Presummer bushfire mitigation - Every time I light up, I end up with several "helpers" looking for a bit of easy tucker.

Not much happening around here of late - here's a pic from June 2005 - my front gate looking towards the main house.

We have a couple of Banded Lapwings nesting in the open paddock next door. I must admit I have always just thrown them under the generic name "Plover" but they are really Lapwings (Vanellus Tricolor) and as usual this pair have not disappointed, true to form they have laid the eggs in one of the most exposed spots around here and protest loudly when anything/anyone comes within 100 meters, even at 3 in the morning.

Brown Goshawk (Accipiter fasciatus) A Kerfuffle among the Magpies alerted us to this guy. (Thanks to the Magpies warning cries I have seen a lot of wildlife over the years that would normally slip on by - Goannas, Foxes, Koalas and the like)
This Goshawk was feeding on some other poor bird What (?) I am not sure of at this stage - it looks like a Rosella but for the time being the bright green underneath between the legs and tail feathers has me fooled - nothing like any of the regulars in this area unless it is a Juvenile.
Anyway happy to have observed this fella not regularly seen - especially feeding.

Hardenbergia Violacea - Also "Purple Coral Pea" BUT....It has a lot of other localised common names and puts on a long colourful display in my area this time of year.

And supports a range of small critters...
