Recently I spent a few days at Agnes Water in Central Queensland. Agnes Water is a coastal town just south of the Tropic of Capricorn, so it is an ideal place to escape the harsh winter of my part of Australia.
The following photos are just a few of the species I encountered in the natural world of Agnes Water.
Our holiday accommodation faced east, and was high up on a hill, so watching the sunrise each morning was a delight.
This Australasian Figbird (Sphecotheres vieilloti) was enjoying her breakfast in a nearby, well, fig tree.
As I stood on the veranda, waiting to see which birds would appear, my attention was drawn to this Brown House Spider (Steatoda sp) backlit by the early morning sun.
When I saw this Grevillea in a local park, I knew it would not be long before one of the many Blue-faced Honeyeaters (Entomyzon cyanotis) appeared.
