Stage 4 from this past weekend’s #X3 Rifle Match. I had planned to move slowly and fluidly through the stage but my game plan went out the window... The #rickybobby in me just wanted to go fast and screwed things up.
Luckily I shot good alpha groups and was able to place 7th on the stage.

It’s the moment none of you have been waiting for... when I make you look at my holiday slide show! Flinders Island really is the most amazing place. Around Killiecrankie Bay on the northwest tip of the island, you can find topaz that washes up in the sand (scroll through for pics of the treasure we found over 2 days) as well as bits of dead fairy penguin (gruesome/cool) and some of the brightest coloured lichen I’ve ever seen (keep scrolling — I didn’t even boost saturation or anything). At the last minute I tried to organise a trip to Chappell Island to see the huge tiger snakes there, but although the Aboriginal Land Council kindly granted me permission to go to the island (which they own and manage), I didn’t manage to organise a boat to take us there. Oh well, at least we had a tiger snake right on the front patio of the holiday home we were renting! At first we thought it was a black snake because it was pure black, no stripes at all, but then I noticed its distinctive tiger head and ventral scales. It was a very well-mannered snake and after I moved it to the woodpile, it stayed there for a couple days in the little hidey hole we made for it. The vet who helped me with the rescued blue tongue lizard (previous post) told me that on the packaging for tiger snake antivenin (which he uses for dogs that have been bitten), it says use one vial if antivenin for bites from mainland tiger snakes (Notechis scutatus), two vials for bites from Furneaux Island tiger snakes (the complex of islands which Flinders is part of), and 3 vials for bites from Chappell Island tiger snakes. I don’t know if that’s because they’re so big (they get up to 1.9m long on CI, the longest tiger snakes get, and they get fat from eating muttonbird chicks all summer) or if it’s just something about their venom load that’s independent of size? Because this one on our patio wasn’t that big (about 1.4-1.5m) compared to mainland tiger snakes. Does anyone know? #tassietigersnake#tigersnake#flindersisland#killiecrankiediamonds#fossicking#tasmaniantigersnake#notechisscutatus#antivenom @robertinglis @saiph123 @hey_corrine @rigelinglis
