Here are some photos I took of the local fauna – I’ve resurrected a couple, so apologies if you have seen them before.

Hahaha, if only they COULD talk I wonder what they would say… Lovely, thank you Gabrielle. 🙂

They may not talk but they do communicate – kangaroos have a whole set of grunts etc., to communicate their needs (gets very noisy around here sometimes) – in fact I want to record the kangaroo noises soon (just haven’t got good enough sound recorder – might borrow one from a naturalis friend). Crows have a complex system of calls and they have dialects (which vary by region) – very smart birds the crow. Thanks Adeeyoyo.

Love the emu – that’s a ‘Make My Day’ face! We were up at Myall Lakes this weekend and saw quite a few goannas in the forest – they sure can move when the want to.

Haha – it’s definitely a ‘Make My Day’ face. I should have said ‘don’t mess with a goanna’ as well (but maybe it’s obvious) 🙂

It’s all happening at your place. Are you sure your name isn’t Gabrielle Irwin? Crikey!!

Haha – it’s not the same without Steve Irwin 🙂 We do get stingrays in the local estuary Selma!

Love the pictures! … although that Emu looks scary – eeep!
He does look scary Tracey – I used the zoom lens for that one – haha 🙂

This is what we on this side of the planet think of when we hear the word “Australia.” This, exactly this.
(And it’s fabulous, too!)

Haha – most Australian towns are not like this place – most don’t have kangaroos in everyone’s front gardens. It is mainly because we are surrounded by national park and it is such a small, quiet town. Thanks Aletha.
