Death Adders, Turtles and Moonbows



Have you ever heard of a moonbow? It's a night rainbow - a white rainbow, lit by the full moon. And I saw one. In the same week, I rescued a turtle (tortoise?) from imminent death on a road and came within a metre or so of a death adder on a family property. 

The track.

The almost invisible Death Adder's lair. Almost bitten on nose while going for macro shot.

The turtle and adder were captured for your viewing pleasure but I missed the moonbow. Nuts. You can see one below courtesy of  http://www.astrofoto.no/astro/moonbow.jpg
