๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Built on the rocks near the guardian monastery (Deir el-Natour), north of the town of Enfeh, these salt marshes are the last on the lebanese coast. Traditionally, the sea water is pumped par small windmills and then evaporates slowly during at least twenty days before the harvest is possible.

I went for a little walk down the road. Wasn't much about at ground level, but I came across a King Parrot (male) and a Grey Shrike-thrush.

The afternoon light looked nice on the local Cockatoo residence (hollows in the big eucalyptus tree out the front).

Delving further back into the archive, here's a feral bunny I photographed in 2008 at my Brother-in-Law's property in Bungendore.
It was shot on a Canon 400D, with a 70-200/2.8L IS and 1.4x TC.

Shot in 2010 at the Abbey Medieval Festival and Tournament, Caboolture, Qld, Australia. This festival is now the largest medieval festival in the southern hemisphere and this year will have been going for 30 years! Even so, this is one of my favourite shots from the 11 years I shot the festival in an official capacity. #photo #photography #medieval #horse #woman
Many moons ago, in the pre-dawn light over Lake Somerset in Queensland, Australia, I shot this watery landscape. It was one of the more impressive sunrises I've seen in a relatively clear sky. #photo #photography #landscape
Lennox Bridge. The first, and therefore the oldest, free-standing stone bridge in Australia. It is situated in the foot-hills of the Blue Mountains west of Sydney and was built in 1832/33 by a gang of Convicts under the supervision and instruction of David Lennox. #Photo #Photography #BlueMountains #Australia #Bridge
Jabiru (Black-necked Stork) male (brown eye as opposed to the female's yellow eye). Although I've seen them in the wild, this one is a captive specimen at Featherdale Wildlife Park, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

A collection of birds I photographed around UQ Lakes today. There's an Australasian Darter, a Eurasian Coot, two Dusky Moorhens and a Corella.

Guy's Tower, Warwick Castle, England. We visited this castle in March of 2013 and did the walk to the top of that tower (it's a lot of steep stairs). I wish we'd had more time in Warwick as the village looked quaint.
Little Corellas (Cacatua sanguinea)

There is a flock of about 50 or 60 Little Corellas hanging around UQ Lakes at the moment, having a wonderful time swinging from branches and digging up tasty bulbs, and roots, and it seems, drinking from the lake.

A pair of Masked Lapwings (colloquially known as Plovers even though they are not related to true plovers).

This morning I witnessed and extraordinary display of cooperative fishing by a group of about a dozen Little Cormorants. They all swam together herding fish before them and ducking under the water to catch them.
Iโ€™d never seen these birds behave like that before.

Part of the Chifley Secrets cave tour at Jenolan Caves, NSW, Australia.

Not a spectacular section of the cave system, but one full of the history of the discovery and exploration of the caves. These sections have only recently been reopened, having been closed to the public for about the last 50 years or so.
They were however, some of the first caves opened to the public in 1800s, and some of the original Edison light globes still exist (no longer working) in this section of cave.

Zoomable panorama of Sydney Harbour shot from North Head.

Some of the shots from inside the cave system we explored today. These are all from the Chifley Cave system in the Jenolan Caves, west of Sydney, Australia.

All shot with a Canon EOS 1DX and Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye.

We went to the Jenolan Caves today and on the way back to the car, I spied a couple of Superb Lyrebirds (one male, one female). The male was making interesting noises (as the do). I followed them up into the bush and then came across this adorable Rock Wallaby.
