Australian native bees (Tetragonula carbonaria) in their backyard hive. These bees are active all year around as long as the temperature is 20°C (68°F) or above, which is pretty much every single day where I am. They make a beautiful honey with its own unique taste. Australia has over 1700 species of native bees as well as a few imports like Asian bees and the European honey bee. #animals #nature #Australia #myphoto

I finally got close enough to this old beast to get a clear shot. The dappled lighting didn't help the resulting photo, but it's good enough to share the experience with you. This individual is about as big as a dinner plate. He's quite skittish and usually vanishes when I point the lens in his direction. I took some video a few months back but it didn't turn out very well. Murray River Turtle (Emydura macquarii). #animals #nature #Australia #myphoto
