Morialta Conservation Park

 
The following images were captured during a lovely morning's outing yesterday through a small section of Morialta Conservation Park, about 1/2 hour's drive from Adelaide's CBD.

 Eastern Rosella

A variety of Banksia

Pacific Black Duck

A male Red-Headed Mouse Spider
(apparently a similar species to the Trapdoor and Funnel-web spiders)
- although research suggests this one is not generally aggressive, I was thankful our feet were well-protected!

 
 
Hop on over to Our World Tuesday 
to see more images from different parts of our amazing world.
(and thank you to the team of hosts of that site)

Beautiful bird and creepy spider, which I did appreciate after I'd first shuttered. :)
