Well Tonight Deb and I are in Kingaroy in QLD staying with E, our eldest.
E graduated with her Masters in Speech Pathology last year and is now working to support kids with speech problems.
First up I was cleaning these fellows out of her garage.
Redbacks (Latrodectus hasseltii) are one of our more dangerous spiders, but since the development of antivenom in 1956 they haven't caused any deaths. They don't bother me (as long as I know they are there). But poor E is somewhat of an arachnophobe, so she saved them for me to move.
This afternoon E took me to the nearby Coomba falls as a reward. I managed a few piccies I was happy with.
Then finally as we were heading back to E's I pulled the car over to attempt some shots of this Wedge-tailed Eagle (Aquila audax)
