mangomilo I love it when these little guys come over to greet me as soon as I arrive at a regular walking spot. This little gal does some crazy fluttering in front of the mirror, then hops up on top & chirps madly at me. Then the male comes over to check it all out but doesn't stick around long - scaredy pants. They are Superb fairy-wrens and are super-cute! 12h

mangomilo My afternoon view! He spent most of the afternoon calling to his herd, wanting to be back with them rather than learning new tricks with me ... And when I opened the gate to 'freedom', he just stood there until I shooed him away! Lol! 4d

mangomilo Janthina janthina, or Violet shell, one of my favourite little marine snails. They float around in the ocean eating whatever floats by, or until they are eaten or wash up on shore. In this case, they seem to have become entangled with lots of other floating critters - Blue bottles jellyfish, Physalia utriculus, also called Portuguese Man O War. So now they make up a long purply, bluey, swirly, bubbly line along the beach. 5d
  •   hedgey_ Love those big lines of bits & pieces that get washed up M, lovely detail here 😀 4d
  •   nimblenewt They usually hang with Vellella too, any by-the-wind-sailors in that pelagic community mix? 4d
  •   mangomilo @nimblenewt Yes, I see those too, but haven't seen so many Janthina entangled with the Physalia before. Porpitas also turn up. I'd like some Glaucus to appear too, as they're so cute. All the lovely blue critters. 4d
  •   nimblenewt Indeed! We get stray Vellella washed up on the beaches here in Canada, but not all the others. It was a great privilege to meet the full component including Glaucus and Glaucilla on North Straddie Island a few years ago. Highlight of my Australian trip. 4d

  •   fstopr @mangomilo Where is the exhibition? Close to a train station? 2d
  •   mangomilo @fstopr Yup, train rattles past the door ... Adds nicely to the whole rusticiness of it all by throwing in a bit of the industrial to juxtapose my naturescapes! ... Oh, sorry, I digress ... Station platform is about 100m from door! Redfish cafe-gallery in Brooklyn Nice trip up from Syd via Kuringai. Or 20 mins up highway once out of Syd ... 2d

mangomilo Once upon a time, decorative features on buildings were of greater value than these days. This Art Deco beauty has a collection of chimerae on its facade. It even has two large koalas - bottom left & right. You know you're in Australia when koalas are hanging around! 2w
