I would class it as successful in terms of wildlife, I encountered 5 leaftail gekos (my highlight I love these things) several different millipedes, crickets, roaches, a few frogs, a nice scrub python, little centipedes by the bucket full, a velvet worm, lots of huntsmans, a net casting spider, a striped possum (that i couldn't resist patting) and a crazy harvestman (that I had to jar to get some pics) - thought I would share some pics (going to have to buy a camera my phone just isn't cutting it)

    Literally 20min drive from home Far North Queensland in the mountains behind cairns I won't go into exact specifics because I think the geckos get the crap poached out of them as it is.

    Hey thanks for the pics, I haven't been out taking pics in a long time, maybe it's time to do that again.

    Nice finds! Love that possum.
     
  9. Now I want to got to Australia! Awesome finds! Wish I could get my hands on some of those specimens (invertebrate wise)!

    Thanks

    And learn the Australian wave? Where the midges and mossies are measured in tons per square hectare? Recalling my cousins kid taking me on a midnight ramble in the Daintree and wondering how many pints of blood I was donating per hour. Encountering a palm like organism with spikes that easily penetrated engineer boot leather and Vibram soles. Or the great joy of the bush, discovering a little late your makeshift gunny shrub has a green ant nest.
    Loved Oz. But I prefer it in pictures from several thousand miles.
