Batten down the Hatches

Last nights storm was a doozie. 6mm of rain and an electrical storm to power the likes of Perth for a Year....All critters were snug and sound in their enclosures.
As the night storm approached at about 6.30pm and lasted well past 11pm.
It was a very slow moving electrical storm and here are some shots of the action.
Does this 1st one look like a hand?

 These 3 taken in sequence

Not a bad View

Sitting at the computer musing on the days toil and lo and behold a Mother hops past with Joey at foot. The window overlooks the back 110 acres. Not a bad office view......
She has come in from the wild to eat the clover around the fruit trees as its summer now and the grasses are no longer green.
On further inspection she also has a Joey in the Pouch --check out the little head popping out.
Yep not much computer work being done.....

Good things come in Packages

Have a look at the Numbat Cards we received in the mails today. These are done by the very Talented illustrator, Graphic Designer, Cartoon Animator and Chalkboard Artist [he was good with the blackboards at school too] and Friend to Wildlife "Peter Lake".
For anything that you would like illustrated send Peter an email at peterlakeart@hotmail.com and I am sure he will be able to help you as he helped us---- go on get in contact with him.
Thanks Peter and to his Partner Vicki for thinking of Us.

The Numbat [Cute as they are] is the Western Australian Emblem and is also an Endangered Species They are now only found in the South West of Western Australia and solely eat Termites [YUM!]. Up to 20,000 a day WOW! Loss of habitat through land clearing and introduced predators contine to threaten the long term survival of these magnificient animals.

These Cards will be used for the Refuges fundraising activities. Want some? drop us a line at maroowildliferefuge@bigpond.com and we will wisk some away to you for a small cost.
