This Jacky Lizard stood still mometarily beside the track near the top of Mt Cannibal – long enough anyway for me to get my breath back sufficiently enough to be able to hold the camera steady, (I’m sure Mt Cannibal is growing!).

A recent bird excursion into the Sweetwater Creek area with the Latrobe Valley Field Naturalists produced some great wildflower sightings – great to be in the company of such multi-skilled observers.

I always enjoy my visits to the Wonthaggi Heathlands, even sans the Southern Emu-wren as was the case last week – I’ll just have to return and try again. The patches of bright blue Purple Flags, Spider-orchids and other herb varieties helped fill in the day quite well.
