Hi Guys. Just a small selection of pics from our 5 week trip, to tempt your tastebuds!

The powerful owl is the largest species of owl in Australia and the largest of the “Hawk Owl” group.
Adults can grow up to 65cm ( 26in) and can weigh up to 2.2kg (4.9lb).
These are two young ones that I managed to photograph trying to keep cool in a shady spot down by the Diamond Creek on a very hot 38*C afternoon.
Although juvenile they were about half the size of an adult bird but pretty impressive all the same – the adult being quite an awsome creature to observe.
It would have been good to get a shot of them together but unfortunately they were sitting on different branches.
Powerful Owls are not listed as a threatened species in Australia but in Victoria classed as vulnerable.
