And you've got mosquitoes and ticks and stuff that carry rather unpleasant diseases that we don't have down here!
I saw a picture of an Australian spider eating a BIRD.

No, that's the smallest I could manage with the KB limitations. Here's a transcript:

Quote:
[Inthistowntastic Bono walks triumphantly toward the microphone having just completed an epic performance of Knocking On Heaven's Door, Robert Smith in tow]

Inthistowntastic Bono: I would like to thank...a lot of people...for making 1986...

[flashback to a month prior, Bono cooking Jiffy Pop, too short to reach the stove properly]

Inthistowntastic Bono: *hic* ...one of the greatest years of our lives.

There is a distinction between what you'll find in urban Australia, what you'll find in regional Australia, and what you'll find in the deepest part of the Outback ...

In any case, most of the creatures people fear the most tend to prefer to avoid humans.

This is one of my favourite photos from Saturday. Not for its technical qualities, mind you. I love that I was the only person even aware of this particular bird.

Very much like the Axman, however, I have an epic summer ahead, so that's my consolation.
One thing that graduating will allow you to do is either look back nostalgically or laugh very hard at this:

I've only ever seen tiny spiders, and most people have some sort of strange aversion to them. Poor things just want a chance to live

Was just playing around with some image editing ... I like this but I'm no judge of these things.

Oh, I do love me some rosellas. The ones over here are slightly more orange, though. Sometimes I feel pretty lucky that we have so many colourful birds here, even if they're noisy little fucks and goddamn annoying.

Yeah, but they live in Queensland, and there are worse things to worry about there. Like the people.

Quoted for truth.

Man, essay work is like pulling teeth today. I'm writing about South Australia too! But it's not South Australia's fault writing is like pulling teeth. Damn historiographical shit is at fault.

There were heaps of them about too ... I'm uploading a few more photos now. Gorgeous birds, and unsurprisingly these ones seemed pretty comfortable around humans - using flash didn't cause them to even flinch, let alone flee. Though U-Wen's attempt to use some dried fruit to lure one to eat out of his hand didn't work!
