Fantastic! Beaut shots, a truly worthwhile post Henry. Madagascar has always been a dream destination of mine.
Love the Pilbara pics too. Lucky guy spotting the northern quoll. Have you ever spotted/ trapped any other Dasyurids in your travels such as kowaris or western quolls? I was stoked to spot a black eastern quoll & devil on Cradle Mountain - no photos though unfortunately. Cheers
Hi guys, I haven't responded as I've just been travelling from coast to coast by car (thread forthcoming... or some kind of multiple blog post- I can't decide).
Thanks for the kind responses, I certainly took a fair bit of time putting it together. It had been something I'd wanted to do early on in the month but being busy and going through my images to put together some kind of timeline of where I'd been has taken time. I wish I'd spent a bit more time and fleshed it out a bit more. As you can see by hitting the flickr links to galleries/sets all the way through there are many many many more photos that could have gone in. I'm sure I didn't choose the very best images... a mix i guess.
TnT78: I often see Dasyurids when we're trapping. Mulgara (blythi), Kaluta, various Planigales and Dunnarts are often seen in the pilbara. Just last weekend in some Qld rainforest I saw some Antechinus racing around madly.
Only seen a western quoll once, that had let itself into the fenced reserve Karakamia in the Perth hills.
