This is a feral camel in the Northern Territory (picture snapped out of the window of a moving bus hence the poor quality). Feral camels are generally considered as a "minor" agricultural pest, compared to other feral species. They have a significant negative impact on the native flora. The camels were originally imported into Australia in the 1800's for use in the desert areas like central Australia, particularly in connection with the construction of rail and telegraph lines and remote townships.

Lovely photos from all, especially the autumn foliage. That's something we don't see much of in my part of the world.
Meanwhile, I'll continue with my Australian wildflower pictures. I hope you're not getting tired of them; I don't have much else to offer at the moment.

We've had several nights of fireworks in the UK to mark Guy Fawkes night. I always
try to take some photos of rockets going up if I can but it isn't easy to capture
them. This is the best I could manage this year.

This photo was the result of me sneezing at the exact moment I pressed the button to take a picture of some colourful leaves on a tree today.
I had to darken the photo and increase the satuation in photobucket, but the result sort of reminds me of a firework display.

I was going to say that it's an effect that's not to be sneezed at but stopped myself just in time. smile It looks brilliant, a case of fortunate timing.

all the photos are spectacular!

Here is a sand goanna that lives in the yard. He's got a kink in his tail so we know he's the same one for the last couple years. I've never touched him with my hands but have stroked him with things like grass or leaves.

Copago, I had blue-tongue lizards in my yard. Two different species, judging from their eye markings. Maybe they sought refuge from surrounding properties being "developed". Mine is one of the diminishing number of houses still with trees, grass and leaf litter. I haven't seen them lately - maybe the chooks have driven them away.



We spotted this little feller basking in the sun as we walked in The Grampians.
Could be a skink, but I'm not really sure.

auntie - Where we come from in NSW - that would be a skink. I have one who visits regularly called George. They are fairly tame and rather fearless too if they are in safe surroundings.

Yes we have skinks here too and some are poisonous, so not touching him would be a favourite with me too.
