Frogmouths, blue tongues

A pair of Tawny Frogmouths roosting outside my brother's house in Port Macquarrie. The birds are doing their best to look like dead eucalyptus branches, an effect spoiled by the palm tree they're in.

A pair of baby blue tongue lizards. These were caught by a kid who was taking them to school. A kindly passer-by saw the kid showing them to friends, and offered to buy them. $4 later she had the lizards, and 30 minutes after that they were in my care. I released them into my back yard because it's blue-tongue friendly. They're smaller than the other two I have there and and have different colours, yet they're came from less than 5km away.
