Sometimes, the bravest thing you can do is to never look back.

It's throw back Thursday and today I take you to Cloudbreak Mine Site back in my old FMG days! I didn't work on the mine but our team had to make a few site visits over the time. This photo was taken 9 years ago. I'd love to see how much it's changed since then!

The stunning Cleopatraโ€™s needles orchid (Thelymitra apiculata) lives in shrubland in a small area north of Perth, & flowers from June - July. It's also listed as Near Threatened.

This is one I photographed last year.ย Given how beautiful they are, their proximity to Perth & a surge in interest in native orchids, increasing numbers of people are looking for them, & the person who monitors them noted that she records more squashed flowers than intact ones now. This doesnโ€™t take into account damage to small leaves, which arenโ€™t identifiable once squashed (immature plants only put upย a single leaf that gets bigger each year until theyโ€™re mature; squashing them can kill the plant). Iโ€™m confident the chances Iโ€™ll squash larger leaves, buds or flowers are very low (Iโ€™ve done lots of field work with small, cryptic species in different habitat types, including having my ability to find small cryptic things assessed), but I don't think anyone can beย confident they arenโ€™t treading on smaller leaves without having that specific ability assessed. So we decided that the best thing we could do for them was to stay away this year.

We need to be really careful that we arenโ€™t loving nature to death. Responsible nature tourism can benefit conservation efforts in a number of important ways, but theย reality is that the more people that want to see particular species in the wild, the more potential there is for negative impacts on those species (as well as others that share the same habitat). What can you do?
๐Ÿƒ Resist the temptation to feed or touch wild animals, pick wildflowers or remove shells, wood, stones or rocks (or move them around by creating rock stacks - small animals often live in rock crevices, but the 'artistic' stacks don't usually provide appropriate ones);
๐Ÿƒ Stick to established roads & tracks if youโ€™re on your own / encourage tour leaders to do the same;
๐Ÿƒ Seek out ethical nature-based opportunities / tourism operators;
๐Ÿƒ Let tour operators know that you donโ€™t want to crowd animals, youโ€™d rather view them from a respectful distance;
๐Ÿƒ Basically, research / think about what impacts you could have before you leave home, & what you can do to minimise them! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Boab Prison Tree - Derby, WA, Australia. ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ
This 1500 years old tree is reputed to have been used in the 1890's as a lockup for Indigenous Australian prisoners on their way to Derby for sentencing. Such an interesting story.. #westernaustralia #westernaustraliauncovered #amazing_wa #australia #australiagram #seeaustralia #exploringaustralia #wow_australia2017 #tree #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #natgeo #natgeotravel #nikon #mynikonlife #photography #photooftheday #travel #traveling #travelgram #traveltheworld #travelphotography #instagood #instagram #instadaily #instanature #instatravel #picoftheday #night

A local wise man @corey_james_allen led us to this magic gorge. A powerful place. No signs, or fees, or permits, or regulations.... just respect. 'Big up' to curious_will a favourite lady love of ours.

The 1.5km return Handrail Pool trail in Weano Gorge is a grade 5 walking trail which involves narrow passages and climbing down a handrail off a steep cliff. If your prepared to get wet you will be rewarded.

Some Orcas out yesterday on the #Ningaloo reef!!

Who would've thought surfers could make such great beer! Local beer @honest.ale is kicking ass but has stiff competition from its East Coast rival @balterbrewers... maybe we should organise a comp, West VS East? @tajamos, @dinoadrian, @jay_davies VS @mfanno, @joelparko, @bededurbo? Just saying.. could be fun ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿบ
