I promised myself that I would not do this again, and reconciled I slept with a sense of good fortune at having watched such a tiny and delicate creature.
You forgot to mention critically endangered!

Awesome pic Greg...truly awesome!

Oh yeah, the rest was pretty good too

An amazing report Greg!! Very well written (and photographed). I admire how you always investigate the indigenous significance of everything, I am the very much same but I am surprised at the amount of narrow-minded people who don't want to know.

I only wish I had've done my research prior to my arrival at Parnka Point - it was about 8 degrees, raining and night time. We drove the few kms in to the campsite, then upon arrival I got out and felt quite uneasy. Thinking there was a murderer in the bushes we then proceeded onto Meningie Caravan Park (yeah I hate CPs too). Over time I have realised that I am sensitive to spiritual energy (just like the time at Mt Chambers Gorge). If I hadn't have been so tired I might have been able to tell myself what exactly I was feeling, but on this night it just felt like the heebeegeebees.

.....and yes, I too still carry the guilt of using flash photography on endangered wildlife when I took a single photo of a Southern Bentwing bat in Naracoorte Caves. Let's just say I felt so bad I'll never do it again.

Such an awesome report Greg!! Only discovered it last night, but kept me up late as I read through the whole thing, when I was really meant to be writing an essay... Time well spent in my opinion!

The excellent photography accompanies the stories perfectly! Great stuff.
