    Well things have settled right down in the field herping forum so I thought I'd post a few of the critters I've still been able to find in the cold weather (nothing special but there isn't much to see at the moment).

    Crinia signifera

    Litoria ewingi, 3 colour variations at the one small pond

    Saproscincus mustelinus

    Lampropholis guichenoti

    Pseudemoia entrecastauxii

    Parasuta flagellum

    Austrelaps superbus

    With the cold weather I've had to pay a bit more attention to the feathered reptiles to keep busy (all photographed from the comfort of my bedroom).

    Nice shots in the middle of winter... the Lampropholis still looks like he's just waking up! How lucky to have all those birds from your window; all I see are Indian Mynas.

    Hi Greg, I do edit my photos for sharpness, but there's no need to post "good copies" on the net.
    The garden outside my window is planted with native a Correa, Grevillea and a nice running postman that's just coming into flower so the nectar feeders love it.

    Jordo,
    That was a good collection of shots from the winter. The Little Whip was particularly nice.

    Regards,
    David
