Australia's best meteorite craters
Australia's thorny devils (Moloch horridus) are incredible animals. Their spiky armour is, as you might have guessed, used for defence. Their is dotted with tiny grooves that suck up dew on the surface and water from the ground through capillary action, passing it to the devil's mouth without the lizard having to lift a finger. So it's probably not a look judgement this little devil has on its face, rather, it's one of satisfaction.

This perfectly still morning found us taking off at first light in a hot air balloon. Rising above the clouds to see this scene open up was surreal - one of those rare captures that most photographers dream of. Wilpena Pound looked like a bubbling cauldron, which was creating a wonderful magic potion. Wilpena Pound, Flinders Ranges, South Australia.
