Photographer's Note

Best opened in a new tab.

For those of you wondering about sheep in outback droughts here are a couple of answers. Firstly where are all the sheep that I've mentioned? Here are some.
Secondly with no evidence of feed in most of my recent photos what do they eat? The food for these sheep has come on the back of a truck or tractor. Many station owners have had to fork out big money to bring hay in from elsewhere to keep their sheep alive.
And for Mariusz's question about big spiders and snakes: The only spiders we saw on this trip were small ones with tangled webs. Most seriously poisonous spiders (eg Funnel Web Spiders are found in wetter coastal areas and aren't seen a lot.) As this trip was in winter the snakes were all hibernating. Winter is the best time for outback and travel in Northern Australia.
