    Excuses

    I haven't looked in for a few days. Lack of phone signal! Hopefully this is a good excuse.

    Lakes Entrance

    Following the earlier thread on the wildlife of the Gippsland lakes, here are a few shots of the place itself. This is the entrance that the town is named after... Entrance A man-made channel cut through the natural sand bar that separates the Gippsland lakes from the Bass Strait. The town itself is a working fishing port fishing boats but most people come here for recreational boating. Water skiing and of course the beaches beach 1 You don't have to wander too far to get away from the crowds at the surf beach, beach 2 Or you can just wait for the weather to change. For New Years Eve, it is reported to have the biggest fireworks display in Victoria outside Melbourne. Fireworks
  3. Just about to settle down the for the evening on Sunday, when I spotted this guy in the corner. (it might actually mean I can give a weekly photo challenge a go for this year...) White Tail Face White Tail Looks a bit ugly compared to some of the jumping spiders I've photographed before. (What is the world coming to when I'm considering the attractiveness of spiders?) White tails also apparently have a nasty bite which can cause severe reactions. Usual set up - Nikon D7000, Tamron SP90, handheld single exposure, on camera flash + LED flash light.
  4. Had a short break at Lakes Entrance, Victoria over the New Year holiday. Here are a few shots of the wildlife from that trip. A seal playing in the entrance channel - whilst taking this picture, there was a family sat next to me and the kids never lifted their eyes from their phones - shame! Seal The channel was also popular with Comorants. Comorant The walk out to the entrance channel passed under many trees full of birds, including large numbers of Rainbow Lorikeets. Lorikeet D7E_6889 Along the waterfront in the town, it was swans and gulls that were most common. Occasionally, there were pelicans, but I didn't manage to get any of them. Sawn I did manage a bit of an action sequence with this gull picking up a dead fish from the water. Gull1 Gull2 Gull3 Gull4 Gull5

    Monsters

    These are some of the monsters that live in my local waterways (sharks, stonefish, box jellyfish & Irukandji are common here, along with the crocs). Thankfully, on the Capricorn coast salt water crocodile numbers are relatively low, so they don't tend to be aggressive - they are somewhat more shy (it isn't to say they won't attack humans, just that they're more shy and less aggressive in lower numbers). This is in contrast to the northern parts of Australia where larger numbers make them extremely dangerous to humans and every waterhole is a potential threat. This was a visit to Koorana Crocodile farm on the Capricorn coast. While this is in my local area, this is my first visit as part of a commitment to taking more family outings. The tour is fantastic, well worth it. My toddler absolutely loved it. #1 We were fortunate to witness an assisted hatching, the second-last of the season. The just-hatched survive off the nutrients of their egg for a couple of weeks before beginning their existence as a deadly predator. This isn't the greatest shot; I had a slow lens and little light, so ISO was high and I had to shoot over the shoulder of the handler. #2 The little fella immediately after greeting the world. #3 This is one big croc: #4 This girl is all business. She was straight out of the water when food was offered and was happy to take it, covered in seaweed and all (no hands or elbows allowed over the fence): #5 Here's the fella that lives in the same pool. Those teeth are nice and sharp: #6 Lean, mean and extremely fast. There are a number of myths surrounding how you should escape from a croc. There is zigging, zagging, running around in circles and climbing trees. However, crocs are masters at figuring out repetition. You can zig and zag 5 times and after the fifth zag, he'll get you at the zig. You can climb a tree, but he can wait all week until you weaken enough to drop. The only bet with a croc is to run in the opposite direction and don't stop until you're out of sight. Another thing of note, is if you launch your boat at the same spot every day, he'll get you on your last day once he's prepared his attack plan. #6 These guys are in a state of cool running - they are cold blooded and the water is cool; imagine what they're like when everything is tropical warm! As was demonstrated, crocs don't necessarily 'hear' what's happening; they more or less sense it. Once you get vibrations through the air and ground, they are already planning an ambush and have you squarely in their sites. #7 Here is a monster at around 4-4.5 metres. You must remember that these guys can exceed 6 metres(!). #8 Finally, here's myself and the little fella checking out the scenery.
