    He was actually blocking the pathway in a very narrow alley to the carpark. As I waited for him to move, it seemed like an eternity as he tongue flicked the air and moved off into the garden. Just after the shot was taken the little Chinese chef came out for a handful of herbs and he almost had a crap on the spot as he didn't look down before reaching over the fence and his hand was headed straight for a snappy mouth. I laughed 'til it hurt, eventually he smiled and shuffled away, empty handed.

    Looks to be a fair sized specimen. He wont hurt you though. Mind you I had been told that when frightened they'll climb the nearest tall thing, which could be you. We had heaps of the around up on the Dampier peninsula. None ever did that, but would sometimes stand up on their hind legs. We had names for many of them, & one even used to come into the kitchen to be fed now & then. Never felt threatened by them at all.

    When I was here 12 yrs ago we had a couple of really large lizards at the mine site that hung around the admin and projects building. despite instructions not to feed them, people did, so when a person came withing say 10m of the lizard it would run straight at them and prop about a meter away - bloody frightening. Finally one went too far and clambered up a womans leg and tore her jeans leg and scratched her, so the enviro's captured them and relocated them to a fair distance away. At the Top camp they lived under the dongas and at 6pm would come out by the dozens looking for food as the crews arrived from the days work, wide range of colours also.

    I think my pic is of a Striated Thornbill, or a young Buff-rumped Thornbill.

    That Sunbird pic is amazing. The northern Red Brows are more brightly coloured than their southern kin.
