More Critters From Down Under

The when the tide is low and the tidal flats uncovered, you'll find shallow pools full of all sorts of critters. One of the first things we found while poking around the exposed coral heads was this crab.

At the Arcardia Guest House there were several wild rainbow lorikeets that come down from the trees every morning to visit and get a quick treat.

At Bremner Point on the east end of Geoffrey Bay on Magnetic Island is a colony of allied rock wallabies. They are quite tame and come up to you to be hand fed. This mother had a curious joey poking out of her pouch.

Been Down Under Enjoying Winter

Not sure how many people visit my blog regularly. I get a visits regularly but not so many comments, so I'm not sure if new posts are missed while I am on vacation.

Anyway, I've been down under in Australia enjoying the mild winter in Queensland. Spent some time on a small island off off Townsville called Magnetic Island. It's quite an amazing getaway and will probably result in a few more off Tokyo posts.

How to Transport Five Dogs

Last week at Yoyogi Park, I caught several glimpses of this gentleman and his pack of poodles. He seemed to be enjoying pampering his pooches in the park and transported the pack stylishly with ease in a trioBike mono. He was swift, but I was quick with my shutter. Although I had to manual focus my old but trusty Nikon 24mm f2.0 performed well.
