Now I just stumbled across a photo of the gecko I found a few years ago.. Apparently it is a marbled gecko (Christinus marmoratus).





And here is the one I suspect to have stowed away in the luggage on the way back from Queensland. Looks like its tail had broken off some time earlier and begun to grow back.

They aren't fighting. They just both went for the same bug.

uropygia, I would say. and yes. they belong to the Australian fantail genus rather than being related to northern hemisphere wagtails, but they use their tails to give them maneuverability when chasing insects


willy wagtails tend to stay on the ground while grey fantails hunt flying insects around the tree canopy

Neat. The grey fantail reminds me of a chickadee with a long tail and slightly off markings.

A crow swooped on this lizard. It escaped into the study.

You certainly crank out some top quality photos. Not easy, I know, and your output is very much appreciated.

They are adorable spiders.

I am so glad you share your photos with us, Martin. As others say, they are remarkable.

Great pics! Those jumping spiders fascinate me. I once sat with a taco on a harbour wall in La Paz at the end of the Baja peninsular in Mexico, watching them go about their business. They moved so fast that no matter how hard I stared I could not detect the motion at all. They just disappeared from one place and rematerialised in another. I concluded that they were actually teleporting - but then, I did have a very large bottle of Pacifico beer along with the taco.

Anyway

Today I found some Blue Banded Bees, and a bird. Stoked to find the bees. I've been hoping to see them at my house for years, but had to settle for the botanic gardens. This is the first time I've managed to photograph them.

Stunning macro work with the bees there - although I think blue banded bees are an abomination against nature - and the parroty thing is? Also fantastic shots of the boid btw.

Lordy I shoulda known that! I posted a couple sitting on a Sydney Domain cafe table ages back - but they didn't look that good in a compact camera shot.

Bees are black 'n yellow man
