Nice shot. Do you have critters like this around your home often? If so, good for you!

I've only seen these before outside Melbourne, so I'm feeling blessed running into them just off main walking/cycling trail.

In weeks to come, I'll put up the best thing I've seen around here, a so-called Powerful Owl.
