This dude has a sick skill!!

This rock balancing is done by Michael Grab. He is an artist and has killer patience. On his site gravityglue.com, Grab explains:

“The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of ‘tripod’ for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.” Pretty sick, amiright?

Beautiful, rock art to a whole new level.

Spotted!

Isolated Tasmania is home to a unique array of flora and fauna. One of the lesser known local species is the cat-sized eastern quoll. This spotted, pink button-nosed fella can be quite commonly found throughout the state sleeping in hollowed-out logs or rocky dens. As carnivorous marsupials, they emerge mainly at night to hunt.

Sadly, quolls have not been spotted on mainland Australia since the 1960s. Tasmania’s lack of competitive predators and widespread untouched natural landscape have allowed quolls to continue to thrive on the island state. 

The pictured quoll was shot while visiting the Trowunna Wildlife Park at Mole Creek. This sanctuary nurtures and allows Tasmania’s native flora and fauna to thrive. The park also houses the world’s largest heritage population of endangered Tasmanian Devils. A tour of the north isn’t complete without taking a brief 15-minute detour off the main highway between Deloraine and Elizabeth Town to see these incredible animals up close.
