Final leg of our tour done!

It’s been amazing to see Sarah again after all those years, she’s been the perfect host & made us feel totally at home in her place, maybe just a little too much at home cos I’m seriously struggling to get on this flight and return to normality, fingers crossed I win the Oz lottery tonight, I’m sure my odds must be pretty good with 20 lines? 235 more words

Macro Photography @ Kings Park, Perth

This is a new jumping spider – it might be called a “Opisthoncus mordax” but I’m not 100%.  In this photo you can see the markings on his abdomen are unusual to the jumpers I normally photograph.   178 more words

A few days back, we mentioned that Marri (Corymbia calophylla) is a white flowering tree. That is true in the vast majority of cases, but just occasionally you may find the pink variety. 9 more words

Not like in the good old days, like the 1950s. When people knew how to behave. 301 more words
