You know you have left the big smoke when...

 drop in at the local community hall/op shop and nearly every one in the neighbourhood is in there line dancing.            
          ...the local kids' park is home to kangaroos.  This old man kangaroo looks with complete disdain on my intrusion into his domain. (Note his Willy Wagtail mate hitching a ride.  I didn't see the bird until I downloaded my photos.) 
           ...and there is really no need for the man-made silhouette of a kangaroo when the real thing is willing to pose - and much better looking.
  ...when we can leave our brand new letterbox just sitting on a box on the footpath and it doesn't get stolen or trashed.
          ...when you see lots of these beautiful creatures fluttering about.  This male Birdwing Butterfly followed his lady around fluttering directly above her to show off his colours every time she stopped to sipped some nectar.  She seemed to be more interested in the flowers than than her suitor.  He was much bigger than my hand span.  She was even bigger, but less colourful.
          ...when you have several kilometers of this without another person in site.
It's a tough life, isn't it?
