It has been raining still. This morning, a day later than I usually take my Weekend Sky photos, there are blue skies. I also had a bit of a sleep-in so the sun is a bit higher in the sky. Todays weekend sky photos I have added a couple of added bonuses.
Here is your sky song for your Saturday night or Sunday morning
From my small deck, the usual view
The Sun is shining on more of the Eucalypts
Bonus number one – Our Moon is still awake in the western sky
The new leaves and sun on the Paperbark tree were too good to leave out
Upon my walls they run free keeping my house insect free They have their freedom bother no one Behind the pictures on the walls scouting for insects a mate Beautifully named Velvet Geckos exist with me Under the light is one I named Keith any insect who drops to the floor is dinner But upon the walls they run free.

And now for the deadly part.
When I had chooks a few years ago, it was devastating to find dead birds after a Spotted-tailed Quoll paid a nocturnal visit. Notoriously hard to catch, I set the trap with a dead chook previously killed and I managed to trap it. I released the Quoll in the Gibraltar Range National Park in the morning. Once I opened the cage it was gone in milliseconds before I could get a photo of the Quoll not in the trap.
