The Mistake Mountains up above the clouds in Main Range National Park. They form part of the Great Dividing Range and are home to a number of endemic and endangered species. The headwaters of the Condamine and Brisbane Rivers start in Main Range National Park at over 1000m above sea level.

A juvenile Fleays Barred Frog (Mixophys fleayi) from Main Range National Park. These endangered frogs are only found in rainforest at a few locations, generally at higher altitudes, around SE Qld and NE Nsw. The juveniles are particularly striking, the orange in the eye turns to blue in adults.

A very plain Burtons Legless Lizard (Lialis burtonis). These lizards are highly variable in colour and pattern, with habitat and location often playing no part in their appearance. However where i found this one they (about a dozen) have all been the same.

The awesome Granite Belt Thick-tailed Gecko (Uvidicolus sphyrurus) from outside of the Granite Belt of Northern NSW/South-east QLD. These geckos are the sole member of thier genus and are usually found in the granite of the New England Tablelands. However this one was found on sedimentary sandstone outside of their usual range. A very exciting find.

Two recently published books which feature some of my photos. Each book contains over 30 of my photos. I am very pleased and proud to have my work included in these field guides. The book "A guide to Wildlife and protected areas of the Top End" is very impressive; covering fish, frogs, feathers and everything in between. .

A Spotted python (Antaresia maculosa) from the southern Brigalow Belt. This fella was found in a granite outcrop which is quite different to the surrounding Brigalow country. Im looking forward to exploring the outcrop this summer too see what lives there.

A little Common Dunnart (Sminthopsis murina) found on the weekend in the southern edge of the Brigalow Belt. These little cuties are actually ferocious carnivores and are the worst nightmare for anything smaller than them.

Today is Threatened Species Day in Australia. It marks the day that the last known Thylacine died in 1936. It is a day to reflect on the species we have lost and those that are at risk to extinction.
Here is a Purple Necked Rock-wallaby from the Selwyn Range in North-west Queensland. These adorable marsupials are vulnerable due to poor fire management, grazing competion with goats and stock and predation by cats.
