Ok, I’m thinking it might be time to plug our little online, photographic Shop. (see Menu)
I’ve spent many hours on the net, searching for a ‘Print on demand’ Online Market Place, and Redbubble came up trumps.
Founded 2006 in Melbourne, Australia, Redbubble allows Artists and Photographers to decorate a variety of products, which include Prints, T-shirts, Cushions,, Duvet covers, Phone cases, Coasters and so much more.
They are a Global company with offices in Australia, United States and Europe.
We have already purchased some products to check out the quality, and must say, very impressed.
We have uploaded over 100 images so far, and adding more every day. These images include Birds, Dragonflies, Mammals, Reptiles and Butterflies.
If you happen to see one of our images that catches your eye from any of our Wanderingeagles Galleries at Facebook, Instagram, Flickr or our Blog at : Wanderingeagles.com, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will make it available in the shop ASAP.
Also if you like our Shop and think it’s worthy, please share 😀

Hello again from Ingham!!
The last week has just flown by, we have been out and about most of those days as the weather has been good though it’s really starting to warm up now so I’m glad we are heading south.

Our front legs for the van arrived mid week and Anthony didn’t have too much trouble fitting them though it appears there is some very small ( hopefully minor ) piece missing. He did give the legs a go and all seems ok though we have ordered this little missing piece and will be picking it up in Rockhampton on the way south.
As usual we have put off some much needed maintenance that we really have to do today as tomorrow we are off to Crystal Creek. From there all our trips will be very quick, only a couple of nights at stops along the way. Of course we will be in nature as much as possible, there is nowhere else we would rather be.
Please enjoy our last photos and video of this area, oh and guess who spotted that gorgeous Carpet Python way up in a tree….😊😊

Hello again from Cairns…..
We got back from Thailand around lunch time today, it was great to have my sister Denise pick us up, and she did a fine job of looking after our cat Chloe while we were away.
All went extremely well at the Dentist…..
The worry and stress I had invested in this Dental journey were unfounded. As all I got from that was some virus I must have picked up a few days ago🙄🙄
I have had an implant for two years now, and was thinking I would never get the two molars on it, after having two lots of bone grafting done.
Happily, our Dentist, Dr Lee did the moulds and abutment Wednesday morning, on the Island of Koh Samui, and my nice new molars arrived and were fitted on Friday morning…..
How incredible is that?? Anthony and I also had plenty of fillings done and each a deep clean in that time, amazing.
It probably sounds like our teeth are rotting away in our heads but I think we are like most people, never bother too much with your teeth till you lose a couple, or your gums start hurting real bad then all of a sudden all hell breaks loose.
We can’t say enough good things about Dr Lee at the Dental Home on Koh Samui.
He works there 3 days a week, another two days a week at his surgery in Bangkok and also teaches at the University In Bangkok…..
One very busy and Talented Dentist.

Yellow vented Bulbul
A poor shot of a Brown Throated Sunbird.
A very ordinary effort photographing Birds this trip
So in between Dental visits we got out and about with our hire car.
This is our third time to the Island so we do have some favourite spots to visit.
The Hin Lat Waterfall is always good for a slow hour and a half of meandering up to the top of the Falls. You never know what you will see.
We have seen a huge array of lizards on this walk, some birds too though they are near impossible to get photos of in the thick rainforest.
Also insects, beautiful butterflies and dragonflies.
You do have to walk slow and really keep your eyes peeled.
Common Lascar Butterfly
Common Sailor Butterfly
Also little luck with Butterflies
We stayed at the Smile House at the Fisherman’s Village so could walk to a huge selection of cafes and restaurants.
The weather was fantastic too though very stormy on our arrival.
All very calm above the cloud
I did a little better with Odonata (Dragon and Damselflies)
So now it’s great to be back in our Pod.
We are a bit Jet lagged at present and not really functioning 100%.
Anthony also came down with some Bizarre BUG on the flight home.
So hopefully we can rest up tomorrow before heading back up to Yungaburra on the Tablelands on Monday, via the steep ascend up the Kuranda Range😬😬
Chloe was happy to see us again ( I think ) it’s great to know that we can go overseas for a short time and she is just fine with someone coming to feed her and open her tunnel everyday.
Well we had no problems fitting into the Lakeside Caravan Park in Tinaburra, on the Southern Atherton Tablelands.
It’s very busy, however the managers kept a nice big site for us so we are happy campers for the next few weeks.
We have been out and about catching up with family and friends as well as checking out some great places for wildlife.
Here are a few images of this gorgous Macleay’s Honeyeater with a face full of pollen from the Metrosideros Flower
Peterson Creek is a Hotspot for Platypus
Press Play to check out this Platypus
Just up the road here in Yungaburra is Peterson Creek. With a great walking track and a variety of habitats there’s always something to see. We have spotted quite a few platypus even around 2 pm which I think is unusual. They must be quite used to humans being around as you can get quite close to them on the banks.
I got a nice little video. Apparently Tree Kangaroos are seen here too but we haven’t spotted one there yet.
Here is a long range shot of one we spotted at Mt Hypipamee (Thanks Nissi)
We did take a drive out to Mount Hypipamee National Park where we spotted one a long way away, also a young Cassowary close to the picnic area but pretty quiet on the bird front.
The weather has been a bit iffy, very overcast and rainy yesterday. Today we woke to blue skies and within a couple of hours it was very dark and overcast again and even a couple of showers. It may be like this for the next week so we will just have to get out when we can and hope for nice weather.
A welcome Flyby of Sarus Cranes
At the suspension bridge across Peterson Creek we were treated by 2 Scarlet Honeyeaters (an adult and Immature) feasting on the fresh Bottlebrush Pollen.
The Sarus cranes are around the area at the moment too and they are great to see flying over honking to each other, fantastic to see.
Anthony has already got a great collection of photos since we have been here so please enjoy them.
