What good is this?

Well pretty damn fine if you’re an antechinus … it’s actually a palace!

What a lovely creature.

Mia Mia Track is an absolute hot spot for Yellow-footed Antechinus. At one stage yesterday morning I was watching four individuals simultaneously.

  1. Thank you for these gorgeous images of our favourite kitchen resident, that I’m regularly relocating, probably because wood thieves haven’ left them any palaces. Very cheeky, check us and residence out through windows first; we might as well not be there!

  2. You are a wizard, executing magic with that camera of yours. Keep up the great work you do Geoffrey.

  3. Superb Photos. Am curious to know how long you sat there to get them and what were you sitting on?

    • Hi John – spent about 30 minutes all up. The trick is to just sit quietly on the ground and watch for movement. This species is very active in the autumn – esp. in the morning and late afternoon.
      Cheers, geoff

  4. Wonderful, Geoff!

    How long did you have to wait to get such superb shots?

    • Hi Heather – I spent about 30 minutes all up – this spot is great for antechinus – I see them on most visits.
      Cheers, geoff

  6. Great shots Geoff!
