These look just like the Cicada back in the US.   Apparently Cicadas live on all continents except Antarctica.  Here is a link to Au Cicadas

Black Swan

On the Lagoon at Chinaman's Island on Lake Mulwala.  There have been a lot of swans there evenings and mornings.  I counted at least 30.

This were some of the swans in the lagoon.  The little looking ones are ducks.

I can never pass up an opportunity to photograph a Kookaburra.  This one was especially cooperative.  It was a part of a group that give its laughing call, but when I tried to record them they hushed right away.

Banksia and Eucalypts

This bush gets more showy every week

The flowers of the Eucalyptus were infested with a lot of beetles this week.  I haven't had a chance to look them up yet.
