One of the non-birding things I was looking forward to during my recent trip to Darwin was revisiting some rock art sites I had not been to since I owned a digital camera - all the images I had of these places from earlier visits were on slides. (If you dont know what these are, you are either one of my younger readers, or I much older than I think!)
These images were taken at the famous Ubirr art site in Kakadu. I will be creating a few posts containing image of rock art - which posses a bit of issue for me. My understanding of what these images signify is almost nil, so any attempt by me to explain what the images would almost certainly be wrong. I am also aware that the broad function of much of this art is to allow people to tell their own story - and its not my story to tell. So, I am going to post the images will minimal comment (except one set) and simply leave it to the images to convey the sophistication of the culture that create them.
The main image on the rock is of a wallaby - possibly Agile Wallaby. And the white figure, is a white person - I'll post more about that image later. The Moth is Dysphania unmana or the 4 O'Clock Moth. It gets its common name as it is a day flying moth.
You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.
