With a nature reserve literally right at the bottom of the garden, I get to see so much wildlife just lazing about in the back yard. Here are a couple of shots of a mother Wallaby and her joey
After doing the weekly chores about the house there was little time to explore far from home this week. I decided that I could take walk along the southern end of Kewarra Beach and also spent a little time relaxing looking out over the back yard at the wild (and not so wild) life that frequents the place.
On a recent trip to Cairns in North Queensland, I took a trip up to Kuranda in the hinterland behind Cairns. One of the attractions is the Kuranda Butterfly Sanctuary where thousands of these beautiful creatures flutter about a huge enclosure for the public’s pleasure.
This Australian Birdwing Butterfly is just one of many species that can be seen. The sanctuary offers education on the life cycle and habitat of butterflies as well as a breeding facility.
Have you been to the Kuranda Butterfly Sanctuary: what did you think of it. Please feel free to leave a comment below……..
Wildlife has always been a favourite subject for me to photograph and there is an occasional animal who just likes to pose. Kangaroos are one of those animal species who, having little fear of man and an active curiosity, will often provide the photographer with some great opportunities.
This guy was grazing the side of the road in the early evening when he saw me approach. Showing no fear, he stood just watching as I walked towards him. After providing me a few good shots, he turned and hopped quietly down a side track to meet up with a few mates and continue his evening meal.
