Finally got a few hours to myself to head out bush and be one with the great outdoors. Man I've missed it!
1. Bull ant. Just over an inch long.
2. Wren. About 4 inches high.
3. White-browed Scrubwren
5. Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby. Endangered.

Top captures there Baz. Those inch ants are not the friendliest critters.
Great shots Baz, luv the Pelican and Wren .... wow, no wonder those bull ants hurt!!!

I'm impressed by that ant, what a look! Jack Vance wrote "the thoughts of insects would terrify you". Can't you imagine this well with that visage?

Thanks guys! I found out the ant is no normal Bull Ant - it's a Jumper Jack ant. I've pasted some WIKI reference material under the image on my website (http://www.barryarmsteadphotography.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=153513259) if you want a read. Scary sounding critter!

Fantastic images Baz as always. The rock wallaby though focus is a little soft. It looks like the camera focused on the rock to the left.

Thanks Greg! Yeah, the rock wallaby was a long way off and a HUGE crop! Lost a lot of resolution thus.
Wonderful shots Baz.
Love those Wallabys, they always look like they are up to mischief. :lol:
Those "Inchman" ants are a real nasty affair. The best way to describe their bite is heat up a 3" nail to red hot and then stick it in your arm.:scared:
They bloody hurt.
