Our World Tuesday - Wilsons Prom (again!)

Some more shots from one of my favourite places – Wilsons Promontory. These pictures were taken very near the end of January, just before the smalls went back to school.

This is (I’m reasonably confident) a Spotted Galaxias. This is a small native fish that has suffered through the introduction of trout into our streams. This little chap seems to have plenty of friends and is about 4 inches long



It was a hot and sticky day and we were pleased to be able to stand on a bridge in the shade and watch some fish. Compared to getting images of fish, birds are a cake walk! This is about as good as I could manage!


The bridge we stood on was also a fine location to play Pooh Sticks – its on the Lilly Pilly Nature walk for those of you able to visit.

The second picture is am image of classic re-growth after fire at the base of a gum tree – this is a quintessentially Australian image!


You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.

Enjoy the pictures.

Interesting post!! Is Australia still introducing species after all the negative earlier results? Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
