At Stanley in Tasmania there is a small rocky island known as Bull rock. It is a haul-out or resting spot for hundreds of Australian fur seals. We went on the Stanley Seal Cruise to get a closer look.

2. Australian (Tasmanian) Mapie (Cracticus tibicen hypoleuca)
There are thought to be nine subspecies of the Australian magpie. The subspecies once known as the White-backed magpie has itself been split into five. According to Wikipedia, Cracticus tibicen hypoleuca now refers to a small white-backed subspecies with a short compact bill and short wings, found on King and Flinders Islands, as well as Tasmania. Some refer to this as the Tasmanian Magpie.

3. Time Lapse of a Cactus Flower Opening
This is my first attempt at a flower time lapse. The cactus is, I believe, Echinopsis schickendantzii. If you are not into flowers then you may enjoy watching the caterpillar at the left. I didn't notice it until I watched the video :-) This is the same cactus that I posted a couple of weeks ago. It got a second lot of flowers so I thought I'd try and get a time lapse. I learned a lot along the way like making sure I have a spare battery charged up :-)
