Foto Fantasia

With a number of you requesting more photos ...
here goes ! Jelly will be back tomorrow.

"Sharing a shower with a friend."
A green tree frog in my bathroom.

A brush tail phascogale, a carnivourous marsupial, but this one loves banana.

Rufous bettongs, the smallest of the kangaroo family. The one in the foreground has a joey in her pouch. They come every night to feed.

A pair of tawny frogmouths "branching" on a blue gum tree, Eucalyptus teriticornis, which is a favourite koala food tree.

OK that does it....forget about starting your own about just opening up the farm to fellow bloggers with very curious kids who would adore visiting your farm!!!!

WOW...the frogmouths in the tree resemble bark and are almost camoflaged...and the rufous bettongs would probably eat everything up if you didn't feed them. Do they bother your garden veggies?

I once took a shower with a very large green bullfrog, but it was on the floor of the shower and when I turned the shower on, it scared the frog and it jumped and I jumped and screamed. I'm not scared of frogs, it just scared me.

Very nice pictures and I think you should start a picture blog of your farm critters.

Wow!!! I have never seen any of those things in my 37 years of life!!! I am envious here!!!
Time to start a "Jellyma From the Country" blog.
I will start the petition:)

What amazing photos! Certainly not anything I'd see where I live. I couldn't help but think how lucky the people are who visit you!

Great photos. Wonderful glimpse into life on the other side of the world. I almost missed the frogmouths in the tree but saw them - great camo.
Hope your little shower mate got to go outside.

Be very careful of's addictive!! And takes up way too much time...but it's so much fun 'meeting' and getting to know all those wonderful people. What wonderful photos. Love the froggy :) Those tawny frogmouths sure are well camouflaged. You should see the possums over here...they're so ugly (poor little creatures) compared to the Aussie variety. Do you have any possum pics?
Was that really Jelly or the now-famous Jellyma who visited my blog just today and talked about coming over for a visit? Thanks to whoever it was and please...come ahead!!! We'd love to have you :)

I agree with Mackey, Jellyma needs her own blog! Thanks for the photos Jellyma, we all enjoy the glimpse "down under"!
