This family of slugs is currently under review by a New Zealand worker named Gary Barker who will be giving the northern Sydney Triboniophorus species two different names.

I am currently writing a field guide on the land snails and slugs of eastern Australia in co authorship with Dr John Stanisic from the Queensland Museum. I was most impressed with your photograph and was wondering if I could use it in our book.

....

Thank you for giving us permission to reproduce your Triboniophorus images for our book – they are very descriptive and show a range of external characters that clearly define that genus and family of molluscs. There is another unusual Triboniophorus species (as yet undescribed) which occurs in the Berowra Valley and across to Glenorie on the western side of Mt Kuringai. It has a grey warty body with a tangerine/orange foot border and triangle. At Mt Kaputar near Narrabri, the local Triboniophorus has a brilliant scarlet body. They all make good subjects for photograph.
The next photo should contain something very old.

A horse drawn wagon for hauling logs along log rails from the late 19th century / early 20th century. This example is from Powell River on the west coast of Canada.

The next photo will have clouds in it.

This is great fun

Here's a close up of a rubber (eraser) because studying blows!

The next photo should contain something big and small.

Cool photo Billi.
At the risk of being booed, I'll fall back on my archive for this one.

The next photo should have something to do with entrances.

Birkland Currents

Let's kick this fun thread off again.
Birkland Currents racing down the magnetic lines of the South Pole.
The next photo should encapsulate Summer [since it's almost Autumn down here a small celebration of the summery sun is in order ]

Hi Trevor,
I took this on the first day of celebrating Christmas holidays last year at Rosebud beach.
The next photo should have something spooky in it.

That's the Spirit

The subject matter is a bit specialised, but this should meet the criteria.
Would be nice if the next photo had some farm equipment in it.

This is a beautiful Reuge musical, animated gold pocket watch which I bought 23 years ago upon the birth of my first daughter for her to keep as an heirloom.

It features four types of Gold, is musical and is animated ie. the man's arm, woman's arm, the water pump, the water stream and the horse's head all move to the musical tune, which is created by a mechanical tune mechanism.
The actual key to wind it up is the Gold Harp on the left and it has an alarm feature that can be set to play the tune and animation.
Presented in a beautiful velvet case.

The next photo should have an unusual animal in it.
