  1. About once a year or so, this pic of a cassowary egg sells in Japan. Today's the day.
  2. Traditional bucket shower in a field station in a remote arid national park in Western Australia. I'd been camping and hadn't had a shower for days so took the plunge. First you heat the water from the rainwater tank on the wooden stove indoors, then you come outdoors to the stone outhouse and pour it in the bucket, and use the rope to stop/start flow. Certainly makes you appreciate just "turning on the tap"!
  3. Low $$, happened to spot it in Hakai Magazine a couple of days ago
  4. 10 sales for $317 gross. Reasonable under the circumstances I guess! Three sales in the first three days of Feb, and zooms are up, so hopefully onwards and upwards.
  5. Planting grafted grapevines in the Swan Valley near Perth, Western Australia. Low $$$ Restaurant in Akaroa, New Zealand. $$. Same article as your recent Akaroa sale, Wim?
  6. Peppermint stick insect. Deeply weird critter endemic to the local rainforest.
  7. I am also incredibly grateful to be living where I am, in such beautiful surroundings, when so many friends and acquaintances are in various degrees of corona-lockdown around the world. A few recent uploads from a 4WD camping trip: Magnetic termite mounds at Nifold Plains, Lakefield National Park, Cape York Archerfish at Boodjamulla National Park The fabulous fan palm forests at Cooper Creek, Daintree National Park
  8. Yes, same here in FNQ, we have done quite well. In Queensland, biosecurity borders are now open up to Cape York as far as I know. Some domestic tourism flights are resuming here into Cairns. Who knows what will happen as all of those chilly southerners charge north for their winter holidays. 😕 PS - our Edge Hill sunbirds are re-using their indoor nest from last year and there are tiny meeping sounds! I think I may be about to be a fairy birdmother again!
  9. Your birds-on-termite-mounds photos are awesome Genevive... am glad you're not stuck in lockdown somewhere, and able to roam with your campervan. ...and camera!
  10. "Stay one shark's length apart" - social distancing on the Great Barrier Reef where the tourism industry is about to start up again, as coronavirus appears to be under control across nearly all of Australia.
  11. Maori wrasse on the Great Barrier Reef last week. This fish's name is Wally and he is very social, at least with some people. He has probably been wondering where on earth everyone is (reef tourism has been cancelled for months). I was trying to work on some sciency stuff and had to keep fending him off.
  12. Omg! Wild garlic! Your comment filled my nostrils with scent and my brain with a memory I had long forgotten, that is vaguely relevant to photography. My postdoc supervisor took me caterpillar collecting on the slopes of the Jungfrau in Switzerland in spring/summer, must have been around 2003. He was a Belgian professor who spoke english EXACTLY like Inspector Cluseau (pink panther). The slopes and forested areas were crowded with some kind of wild garlic that smelled incredible as we trudged through it. He was fussing about with the first digital camera ever purchased by our laboratory group,
  13. Speaking of butterflies with green colours, here's a Cairns birdwing butterfly in my back yard... from a previous year. I have had no luck this year (the caterpillars ate their host plant down to a stump) but others nearby are doing well! This is a female, the males are even greener.
