Not very good but it's all I managed to get on an overcast day.






Murray cray...sort of like a fresh water lobster.You are only allowed to eat them at a certain size and at a certain time of the year.

Cute birdie and good snaps besides. I like the ghost-looking lobster too, reminds me of a monster emerging from the mist (I'm too much imaginative, I know...) Smile .

Best, M.-

That is part of their display the large white claws also makes them easier to see and catch.
Thanks the parrots were every where eating those seed pods,you also had the cockatoos and honey eaters flying around.We went out for a fishing trip dropped into a friends place and the birds were out and about.....fishing came second Rolling Eyes

The second and third snaps are amazing. Can you share the Camera/lens/Film combo (I am assuming these were shot on film Smile )
