Over the last couple of months I've been lucky enough to visit (twice) a nice natural environment north of Maleny, in Queensland's Sunshine Coast hinterland, north of Brisbane. Birds, plants, flowers, Obi Obi Creek, nice forest... you get the picture :). On my second visit I was thrilled to snap a rushed pic of a beautiful little Rufous Fantail bird (Rhipidura rufifrons), so please take a look at that, below. Here are some pics:
Lewin's Honeyeater (Meliphaga lewinii)
A deceased Red Bellied Black Snake (Pseudechis porphyriacus)
Colours & textures
An Australian goanna / Lace Monitor (Varanus varius) appears to have a big yawn, with the light shining through from the far side, illuminating the blood vessels in its mouth :).
Either a Superb Fairy Wren (Malurus cyaneus) or a Variegated Fairy Wren (Malurus lamberti)
I generally wouldn't like to share a poorly focussed pic, but here's a lovely little bird called a Rufous Fantail (Rhipidura rufifrons). At least its tail is in clear focus - appropriate given its name :).
Would anyone like to suggest which bird this is?
Brown Cuckoo Dove (Macropygia amboinensis)
Here's my photo gallery covering two enjoyable visits.
Thanks for looking!
