Following the peregrine, what better than...a blue tit?!

Great shot - they're obviously fans of your garden! Don't know a great deal about hummingbirds - I presume that's liquid in the feeder, some kind of sugar?

Thanks. I have 5 of those feeders around the yard and most are as busy as that one. Yes, that is a clear mixture of sugar water.

Welcome to the forum! Some great pics there! Can I ask you to seek out the Bug Photos thread...one of my favourites, and the one I post mostly in. Unfortunately, due to Photobucket's new policy of refusing 3rd party hosting on its basic accounts, a lot of the earlier pics have been replaced with their warning picture. Thankfully, I downloaded all my albums before they were lost, and am slowly rebuilding the thread with the saved pics. The last couple of pages should be OK.:thumbsup:

I will have dig around on my hard drive and post some on that thread. :thumbsup:

I managed to get 8 Hummingbirds in one shot.

Would love it if we had hummingbirds in the UK.

Don't believe everything on the internet. We went all the way to Oz and never even saw a kangaroo never mind a Croc or a Great White !! We did see some Koala Bears after we paid to get in.

:biggrin:

This is as close to wildlife as we get to here.

Some pics from the estate where I work...

A pair of Roe deer. These are a real nuisance if they get into the formal gardens. I once planted up 8 large urns with summer bedding, and the next day, they were empty...all eaten by deer in the night. We have anti deer (and rabbit) fences in place now.

Moles are another problem I have to deal with...If we get a bad infestation, I have no choice but to trap them, but I don't like doing it, and if there's only one, I resort to digging. You wait until the molehill starts to heave, indicating the mole is directly below, then very quickly slide a spade under the hill, and turn it over. It usually results in a capture, and the mole lives to fight another day after being released into the neighbouring fields.large.Molepics022.jpg.f8dc2ff163d374c63a9b1f39290b9a3c.jpglarge.Molepics007.jpg.c6c1534dca8fd360f292b4b48293d92a.jpg

Won't argue with you there! I had seen one croc on one river up in the Northern Territories before my last trip. And on the creek we went to where I took the pic of the croc above, we saw three others in a short space of time. Previously, I had been loads of places where crocs were expected and there were none!

Kangaroos and wallaby's are practically tame in some suburban / parks, which isn't the same as seeing them in the wild. The only place I did that was in the outback. They even gather on the driving range my brother in law uses. When I went, I was amazed at the way they ignored all the golf balls pinging around! 'Cuddle a koala' places seem everywhere now but I have also seen them in the wild!
