    Found another frog, which I think was tyleri. Just as I was getting close for a macro shot, a bug flew into my slightly opened mouth.... naturally, I coughed and said frog disappeared.

    Also seen, but unfortunately DOR was a Stephens' Banded and a maccie.

    any mammal species about when you go herping? we usually see brown antechinus, brush tailed possums, red necked wallabys, sugar gliders, squirrel gliders, ring tailed possums, aswell as a few owls and some introduced mammals.

    We usually see a couple, but I don't bother stopping for photos. Often see some kind of rodent, bandicoots, possums and the occasional wallaby. Have seen several tawnys up there too.

    We did find this moth also, last night. Not terribly exciting (well, for me at least), but it was massive. Probably about 2/3 of the size of my hand.

    Hey! I was up in that neck of the woods last night, too! I'll post some of my pics later.

    Your last golden-crowned shot is sexy, as is your Oedura tryoni.

    Thanks David :)

    A bit hard to take a bad photo of those guys. All credit goes to the subject there, I think.

    Fancy that :-o

    Come to think of it, I did see some guy wandering around wearing a full-body latex suit, with a big "S" on the chest.

    Thanks Stewart :)

    Yep, all Oedura species are very arboreal and capable of climbing glass.

    I've only ever seen the one up there. Unfortunately, just prior to that we moved a bandy bandy off the road due to an oncoming car, which turned out to be a ranger....... having just been warned for "intefering" with wildlife, we weren't too keen to be spotted on the side of the road with an adder, so I got no decent photos of it....
