Spiders in the sky and birds in the hand

As John and I cruised through the northern section on a search-and-destroy mission for veldgrass, we came across (and quickly dispatched) some geraldton carnation weeds and a japanese pepper tree.
It was a bit unnerving to come eye-ball to eye-ball with a spider - though it was a very pretty one.

We enjoyed meeting up with Rob Davis (Birds Australia / UWA) doing some bird banding in the bushland this morning. Rob ended up banding about 18 birds in his 4 hour stint in the bushland. They were mostly young ones that hadn't been banded before.
