It’s been a LONG time!

A big hello to everyone ūüôā ¬†It’s been 7 months since I last posted anything on my blog and I can see things have changed a lot on WP – I’m still getting my head around it! ¬†I hope everyone is well and I look forward to catching up with you all in time.

My first post for 2017 is of a juvenile rabbit enjoying the shelter of the shade on a very hot afternoon a few weeks ago. Click in for a larger view.

Apologies, I couldn’t resist the title which is a line from one of my favourite films Withnail and I! Hares, in my experience, are difficult creatures to capture in an image – so fast that I generally see their tails flash before me, and then gone. ¬†These were a pair that I captured moving on my belly to get a little closer after work last week. ¬†One day… ūüôā

Werribee Open Plains – Part 1

A very hot day and a trip to a different zoo (yes, there does seem to be a bit of a theme here!!). One of the three that make up Zoos Victoria (the others being Melbourne and Healesville Sanctuary), this one has a predominantly African theme.  Again, as with all of these zoos, emphasis is placed on raising awareness and fighting extinction.
