Onward to the Fairytale City

And then she said…

And she said...

I walked past this scene when wandering Prague.  It made me smile at the time because the girl looks such a little woman, and the boy looks patiently resigned to her conversation.

Listening in.

Maybe they were thinking out loud.  Or perhaps discussing what to have for dinner.   Tawny frogmouth noises are just right to listen to.


Hello Little Puffy Tail..

Brush-tailedPhascogale copy
This is fairly ordinary as far as photographs go…  But the subject!!
Have you ever seen a Brush-tailed Phascogale in the wild?  (Probably not, right? They are nocturnal AND listed as threatened.)  Tonight was a first for me.  Considering how many years I’ve explored the bush pointing lights and cameras at nocturnal creatures without ever meeting a Phascogale, it’s staggering that I saw two.  Yes.  Two in one night.  I can only hope they found each other.

Oh.  And if you think I am excited about something that looks much like a rat or mouse, see the apparent black break in the tree limb behind him?  It’s actually his super-fluffy tail!  Cute as pie.


Line Up! Line Up!

Messy, natural rainforest is beautiful and relaxing. But I do love a line of big trees!

We were looking for koalas.   This is not a koala, but tawny frogmouths make me happy.

Forever

railroad copy

It was maybe the  ten. millionth. time. (Mr BB is so prone to exaggeration!) that I asked to stop and take a picture of something.  Some things you just have to stop for.  Such as a pic of the water from the old rickety bridge … you know the sort that has no sides and the planks rattle when you drive over?  Well, just when I was thinking we would probably be shot at then buried in a shallow grave by the fearsome looking locals who were out in force fishing with their six dawgs (each!) and their monster 4WD’s with huge spotties and (oh, pardon my sweeping generalisations) but as they turned as one to stare at us, it just so happened that the song audible from  the window I was hanging a camera out of, was “It’s alright to be a redneck” by Alan Jackson*.

Wasn’t that perfectly opportune? :P

*(I offer no explanation of why I own that on CD.  Some things are better left a mystery!)

Something strikes me as delightfully Winnie-the-Pooh-ish about this scene.
