gardens of stone, glow worms and wollemi national park

an amazing saturday out in the blue mountains with amy and glen.
apart from stunning landscapes, we saw wild kangaroos (incl. a baby hopping across the road), a superb lyrebird (watch david attenborough’s bbc clip if you haven’t heard about it), glow worms (arachnocampa richardsae; got to see arachnocampa luminosa a few years ago), and beautiful flowers all around. it is spring here, after all. :)
botanical highlights include the endemic species grevillea acanthifolia ssp. acanthifolia and grevillea laurifolia and, to our surprise, some still flowering specimens of waratha (telopea speciosissima), the floral emblem of new south wales.

pictures after the break.
