Really beautiful bird.
Certainly grabbed its attention Mike
Lovely photo

Thank you very much Richard. In past years, they've been so scarce. It's nice too have a few around this year.

They are such animals, same creature
They are gorgeous animals
And have a rather blood curdling shriek when you hear it in dead of night  :p

Watching those videos I can see how they got their name. Wouldn't want to stumble on one in the wild

No they're safe. Flee if they see you.
Won't attack.
But you wouldn't want to grab one (if you could)
Their bite is phenomenal.
Their faeces contains remains that can be digested. Chewed up bones.
They are the scavengers of the bush.
Well were before facial tumour decimated them.

This is a rather unusual angle but I can guarantee Daphne is 100% Tasmanian Devil, that's her up top her with a male called Molloy below.

Okay Daphne was her individual name. I thought it was some sub species of Tasmanian devil. Very cool photos!
