Aussie Animal Encounter

I recently, with Hubby and a few photography friends, did an Aussie Animal Encounter, such wonderful fun (assuming you are not squeamish about reptiles and some insects), sadly my WordPress account is quickly running out of room and I am only showing just a few of the very best images I took, there are more…
