Sand Bubbler Crabs Australia

This crab was not happy having his picture taken, within seconds it buried itself - I was happy to be able to get these shots of it.
When we arrived at this beach it was covered in tiny, perfectly round sand balls, and crabs everywhere!

Adelaide, Australia

I have to admit that I am not a city girl, and when possible try to stay out of them but had to reconsider this with Adelaide, even though I have to admit I didn't venture far into the shopping side of it.
It is a beautiful city and we enjoyed our 2 days here.   I recommend a boat ride along the Torrens. 

We saw this baby koala while visiting a Waterfall not far from Adelaide city.

Flowers, plants and weeds.

I wanted to call this post "things we often don't notice".  A few of this images are of weeds that cover the Australian fields.  We walked over them.trampled them, hardly noticed them.  It wasn't until I made closeup pictures of them that I saw how unique some of them really were.  I don't know any of their names, but who cares.. they are a part of Australians nature :)

I hope you enjoy these fotos as much as I enjoyed taking them. 

Salvation Jane also called the Paterson's curse.

Flinders Ranges

When I started to sort out the pictures for our Gorge drives, I realised that they don't do Flinders Ranges justice.  You need to see it to realise the hidden beauties of this place.  Not only the scenery but also Australias wildlife.  Whereever I looked there was something to take photo off.. animals, flowers, insects etc.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves. I haven't had a chance to find out the names of some of the insects, so anyone reading this blog know any of them... please share :)

Emu family
Red footed rock wallaby
Shingled lizard or as the Aussies call them, sleepy lizard
Would love to know what this one is called.  If I hadn't seen it jump
I would have seen it at all.
