Koala – male
Although it might seem from my posts that a Koala is always here that’s not so. I have no idea how extensive their range is, I’m sure that depends on the density of the Eucalypts they eat but they usually reappear here every few weeks.
I’ve been watching a Blue-Tongue Lizard in our front yard for a while but the weather has been so cold and wet recently I’ve rarely glimpsed it. This morning the sun came out and I thought if I could find the patience to stand, watch and wait I might see it come around the corner of the rock. My patience was rewarded!

Unwelcome house visitor
It’s winter here in South Australia and cold so there aren’t many insects about, few insects means few of their predators. There are some lizards I know I can find because I’ve discovered their refuges. When the sun warms the ground there are hundreds of little Skinks around here but I don’t know where they go when it’s cold.
