Cherry Ballart (Exocarpus cupressiformis) is an interesting plant which requires a symbiotic relationship with local grasses to germinate.

Drooping Mistletoe (Amyema pendula) in flower. It's a plant that is very misunderstood by many and is actually an important part of our local bushland.

A Nudibranch sits atop an underwater stalk in Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, Australia
These vibrantly coloured seaslugs can be found all over Port Phillip Bay. On the Mornington Peninsula over 100 species have been seen, from those as large as your hand to as small as a fingernail. 
The blue appendages on the back of this Nudibranch are it's gills, they allow oxygen to enter the animals body from the water column. 
Photographing these vibrantly different animals is often about angles and positioning. Finding a subject where a photo from below can be taken is a challenge that often pays off well!

Last week an injured seal was found at Williamstown with an infected flipper and cut under his chin.

The seal was taken to Melbourne Zoo where x-rays were taken showing it was fortunately only a flesh wound and “Billy the Seal” was nursed back to health by the AGL Marine Response Unit.

On Thursday Billy was successfully released back to the wild.

Big thanks to @delwp_vic, @parksvic and AGL Energy for their incredible support, without them we couldn’t do this wonderful work.

Even on a cloudy day, The Grampians National Park is still stunning all year round, with its amazing rocky outcrops. Well worth a visit while in Victoria! Here is a view of Hallsgap, the main town leading into the grampians and also Lake Bellfield in the background. I'm not great at landscape, but I still love getting out and trying to capture what I see.

So many of my favourite things in one image: full arch of the Milky Way galactic centre over Bridgewater Bay. The reddish glow over the sea is the Aurora Australis or Southern Lights. There’s even a small meteor in the top right!

The Great South West Walk follows the cliff tops to Cape Bridgewater, where there is a seal colony. It’s very like the Yorkshire coast too, making us feel at home here, only there are kangaroos bounding through the fields! Top up with a great lunch afterwards at @bridgewaterbaycafe !

Day 9 of @rememberthewild s challenge. Not an item you can pick up but an awesome native orchid spotted in #langwarrinfloraandfaunareserve 
I absolutely LOVE this!! I was so excited to finally see one. I can't believe how much it really looks like a duck! It's so beautiful and delicate.

Day 8 of @rememberthewild 's challenge. Nature nerd Jnr and I were out getting some exercise in the #langwarrinfloraandfaunareserve (or feel better bush as he calls it) when Jnr spotted this beautiful Lizard. It wasn't moving much and on closer inspection we found a number of ticks impacting the use of it's front leg. I grabbed the lizard and with the tweezers from my first aid kit removed the ticks. I found a further 19 in it's ears. 27 removed in total before sending her back on her way. She was moving nice and freely as she snuck into the grass!

Had the most amazing day today volunteering to monitor and release Eastern Barred Bandicoots! Definitely one of my bucket list dreams that has now come true! These beautiful little guys are one of Victoria's 21 threatened species, which are endangered and considered extinct in the wild due to predation by foxes and cats and habitat loss. Hopefully through this beautiful and safe haven at Woodlands Historic Park we will be able to increase the population numbers of this beautiful species! Such a special day!

Day 6. I didn't get time to go to a native garden but i WAS in a national park doing a swamp skink survey with the Field Naturalists Club of Victoria. Stoked to have found them at some new sites!

A Short Head Seahorse hides amongst the aquatic flora in Port Phillip Bay, Australia. 
Late one night not far from the shore I came across this amazing 10cm seahorse nestled up tight. It was meeping a keen eye out for the small crustaceans it consumes, I don't think I have ever come across such a beautiful and delicate looking sea animal. 
Photographing a seahorse is usually only possible when the animal is convinced you can't see it. A fair amount of stealth and a relaxed nature is therefore your best chance a snapping a shot. Luckily the bay has a large population so there is always another chance! -

Day off feelings ✌🏻
Day off feelings ✌🏻
Swim time!
It maybe a little cold still in Melbourne's Port Phillip Bay but the water is crystal clear and just begs you to join it for a swim. 
Most people don't realise the amazing beaches and water that exist around Melbourne's southern suburbs. 
Sometimes when there's no animals immediately about, photos of the clear blue sea can be just as much fun to take! 
A tip is to make sure you line the shot up with the rule of thirds so that either the seafloor or surface occupy a third of the shot.
Melbourne, Australia. -

A Weedy Seadragon is on the hunt for tasty crustaceans whilst basking in the morning sunlight. 
Flinders Beach, Victoria, Australia. 
The waters in Western Port Bay can be spectacularly clear.  It can be a hit and miss divesite, when it's good however the bay produces some of Australia's best diving! 
A handy hint is keep the sun in the background, this helps to eliminate back scatter in your photo whilst also adding an additional element to the shot. -

A Pipefish triple reflects against the ripples of the surface underside, Blairgowrie, Victoria, Australia. 
These elegent looking seahorse relatives like to scoot just below the surface scooping up any small animals they find with their long elongated mouths. 
This individual was less than 10cms long, focusing on a moving target is an extremely tough  process but worth it in the end. With surface photography it's all about buoyancy and your position in the water column, limiting your movements will prevent the subject being swept away. This benefits both you and the fantastic animal you're watching!

A Pipefish triple reflects against the ripples of the surface underside, Blairgowrie, Victoria, Australia. These elegent looking seahorse relatives like to scoot just below the surface scooping up any small animals they find with their long elongated mouths. This individual was less than 10cms long, focusing on a moving target is an extremely tough process but worth it in the end. With surface photography it's all about buoyancy and your position in the water column, limiting your movements will prevent the subject being swept away. This benefits both you and the fantastic animal you're watching! - - - #oceanphotography  #morningtonpeninsula  #unlockthepeninsula  #visitmorningtonpeninsula  #uwphotography  #blairgowriepier  #blairgowriemarina  #blairgowrie  #pipefish  #fishgram  #reflections  #naturegram  #ausgeo  #padi  #scubadiving  #scubagram  #diving  #portphillipbay  #parksvictoria  #earthcapture  #amazinganimals  #animalphotography  #wildlifephotographer  #underwaterphotography  #discoverocean  #oceans  #marinebiology  #wildlife  #seacreatures 
Our AirBnB host recommended we go see some little penguins in Warrnambool (the little black dots in the distance in the 2nd photo), but the rocky beach kept us there longer 💚💙 #warrnambool #victoria #victoriastate #merrimarinesanctuary #marinesanctuary #middleisland #penguins #penguinstagram #marinewildlife #wildlife #littlepenguins #island #parksvictoria #coast #shore #shoreline #rocky #rockybeach #geology #striations #waves #ocean #sea #australia #travel #travelgram #roadtrip #exploremore #exploreaustralia

Melbourne looking a bit like African Savanna. How many Kangaroos can you spot?

A Baby Seahorse floats in the night. 
Seeing these extremely tiny animals never ceases to be an amazing experience. Swimming along just beneath the surface a keen eye is needed to spot these tiny beautiful seacreatures no larger than a fingernail. They slowly swim along whilst using their microscopic tails to pull along discarded blades of seagrass, almost like a horse and carriage. 
Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, Australia.

An icy August morning on the abandoned Cresta ski runs.

I learned to ski here in the 60s and my kids learnt to ski at this once thriving little family orientated downhill resort back in the 80s and early 90s. A growing lack of regular snowfall and finally the disastrous fires in December 2006 spelled the end for Cresta. For over an hour on this particular Saturday morning I was the only person there. It was just a little sad.

A Lionsmane Jellyfish slowly pulses through the clear blue water of the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia. 
This individual was only the size of a large orange however given time it will become an enourmous animal. 
The best part about watching a jelly like this one is the pulsating movements that push it to the surface, once there this beautiful seacreature relaxes and falls gently down before the process starts again. -
