Wildflowers Galore and More



I was very fortunate recently to be invited to spend a couple of days with friends on French Island, (Heritage/Parks Vic, PDF 597KB, The Age Travel article, French Island Community Association web page). After some deep thought for about 0.5 seconds I eagerly accepted and my expectations were more than fully realized.

My hosts advised that I had in fact just missed the prime time for the wildflowers by a couple of weeks – wow, what that must have been like I cannot imagine.

The following is a brief summary of just a few of the sightings from day one. I do not guarantee the IDs, (correspondence is appreciated). Click on images for a larger version. The results from day 2 will appear eventually – after a lot of editing, deleting and ID’ing.

  1. That looks like a great place to visit. Did you get some birding in?
    Great photos. Especially like the echidna, the fringe lily, and the tiger snake.
