Photographs, May 2009.

On the last day of May, 2009 – which is also the last day of Autumn (Fall) for us – we took a wonderful bushwalk down to Sherbrooke Falls in the Mount Dandenong, Victoria area.

The wonderful mixture of the Autumn leaves on deciduous trees combined with the evergreen eucalyptus forests is a sight to behold. Most amazingly, we actually had the rare  privilege of seeing a Lyrebird (Menura novaehollandiae) in the wild. These unique birds are named for their lyre-like tails, and are known for their ability to mimick sounds to a surprising degree of perfection. We used to hear them all the time in the bushland near my childhood hometown: they would often imitate a bizarre mixture of chainsaws, truck engines, and other birds.
