Backyard Wildlife

I have never ceased to be amazed at the wonderful wildlife I have been seeing around, since I shifted into my new home. Some of them land up in my own backyard, and I managed to click a few. What I have not been able to capture however, are the gorgeous butterflies, that I see all around the place. Larger than the average size, and what vibrant colours! When I manage to get shots of that, I am definitely going to share them here. And there are birds too, white cockatoos, turkeys, and some birds I have no clue about. However, these are the only ones I have photographic evidence of.



On the grill of the door leading to our backyard, one evening.



This one had a huge web when we shifted in, and unfortunately we had to get rid of it, to make the place safe.
Another huge spider.


The gorgeous bush tailed possum, we spot around the house often after dark.

Be careful. I've read these australian spiders are venomous...

Wow! That is fascinating GM! I live in such sterile and boring surroundings :( The possum looks incredibly cute!

Trish - Yes, this is the one he saw. :)

Rakesh - Yes sir, they very much are, fortunately the varieties we have found and seen around the house so far are the non venomous ones. As for the snake, that appeared yesterday, and I was busy keeping an eye on it, to see it goes away rather than click pictures.

Smitha - Fascinating? Snakes and spiders are pure scary Smitha!!
