While walking through a rainforest, I spotted this Swamp Wallaby hiding behind a fern frond. It stood there, still, staring at me.

The Swamp Wallaby (Wallabia bicolor) is a small macropod marsupial. This wallaby is also known as the Black Wallaby, Black-tailed Wallaby, Fern Wallaby, Black Pademelon, and Stinker.

Captured near Mount Gulaga on the NSW
south coast of Australia.

Mount Gulaga (formally known as Mount Dromedary) is one of the highest mountains on the south coast of New South Wales. It rises above the village of Central Tilba and is within the Gulaga National Park.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
