Comment on Gas, fracking: potential benefits to Aborigines enormous by Leigh Childs.

Short term monetary gain … amount is tempting but irrelevant, versus total and permanent destruction to water supplies and negative effects to land. A no brainer really.

A touch of light: crows
They must accede to the authority of crows. Love it.
It made me laugh out loud. That doesn’t happen often.
So enjoy your words and your turn of phrase. Love the up close feathers.
Mike, have you read the book Feathers by Thor Hanson?
In it he remarks that if he is not gobsmacked each time he is out in nature, it’s because he is not paying attention. Worth a read.

A touch of light: Aquila audax
Another gem from master Mike’s pen. Thank you.
Your mention of being too close to take a shot reminds me of being in a national park and seeing two keen photographers with huge telescopic equipment.
I tippy-toed away from them and shyly hid my Ipad … my only camera. We met up again under a bush shelter and who should come hoping out from the undergrowth and bounce past our feet … a lovely little potoroo. Guess who got the only image?

A touch of light: caper white butterflies
Another gasp, another Gillam masterpiece. Another happy half hour reading and savouring Mike’s words. Thank you so much.

A touch of light: native passionfruit
It is not often that I gasp at an image but that is just what I did for ‘A touch of light’. What a sublime shot, congratulations. Thank you for another lovely article. I look forward to the next one.

A touch of light: totemic caterpillars – ewepe
Thank you, again Mike. I would have enjoyed seeing more images to go with your lovely words. Many cheers.
