Today is World Wetlands Day.

Wetlands are a vital niche in the environment, with many animals and birds using these areas to survive and flourish.

A prime example of this is the Lara Wetlands near Barcaldine, QLD. These wetlands are situated in Central west Queensland, amongst some pretty dry and arid terrain.

This White-plumed Honeyeater is usually a woodland bird, but they were in abundance at Lara.

We get these tiny little house spiders around Adelaide. Anyone know what they are?

Hi fediverse - help please
I want to take my wife to a romantic spot just to sit and ponder after a little stroll. She is very weak, enduring a rigorous treatment for cancer. She can’t really eat anything so restaurants / cafes are probably out. I’m in north eastern Perth (bassendean area)
Any suggestions?
(I just took her down to Busselton for the weekend and I ruined it by getting awfully sick myself, so looking at making it up to her more locally)
I’ve little reach here - retoot appreciated

Stars greater than 8 times the mass of the Sun die spectacularly in a supernova explosion. What's left is a nebula known as a supernova remnant. This is M1 the remnant of a star seen to explode in 1054. As M1 is ~6000ly away, the explosion actually happened 6000 years earlier.

I've been playing a couple of games on the new Go server that has opened, CGS. Very pretty and modern, with some interesting tools/settings to help new players ... a few startup hic-ups as expected, hopefully they'll be ironed out soon.
My main problem is that it is such a resource hog that my fans are a whirring.

Possibly a daft question, but is there a way in mastodon to add notes to a block?
