One of my biggest crops yet with this camera body.
Anyway, I watch this Red-bellied land on this snag and break off a piece of bark,
then he flew away. Bark for dinner! Must have had a grub in it.

This one is a real thinker,.. he call's in the morning until I put the seed out. he just sat there looking right at me for a good long time, made me wonder just what was going though his head.

I stepped on a big brown tiger snake once whilst hiking the Overland track in Tasmania.....It was sunning itself on the track and I thought it was a bloody tree root and ended up nearly stepping on the damn thing!...Lucky I had gaiters on as the thing went straight for my lower leg...Had a strike and then took off:)......I freaked out and it took me another 1/2 an hour to get myself together and stop shaking I was that rattled by it....Especially as I had been warned by the Rangers when I started the track that I may come a cross a few sunning themselves during the 6 days I was on the track . So much for the warning...In one ear and out the other. Suffice to say ever since that time I listen very intently to any advice anyone may have when it comes to what to look out for on any track I may hike that I havnt been on before :)

BTW the Overland track is one of Australias top wilderness hiking tracks. It covers the Alpine high plains area of Tasmania from Cradle Mountain to lake St Clair

A hikers pic of the type of snake in Tasmania I encountered is here although this area is 50 odd K from where I was hiking.http://ourhikingblog.c​om.au …e-bites-tips-to-avoid.htm (external link)

That's the main problem with forest walking...............​the tracks are invariably the only open space where the sun gets through for reptiles to sun themselves. They must be particularly dozy in spring as I actually tripped over a huge goanna one day whilst I was looking up for bird life. I think he was more shocked that I was! :-)
