One of your Austrlian images is that of a fungus chosen to appear on the logo of the Eighth International Mycological Congress that was held in Cairns in 2006. See
I'm not really a mycologist, but I attended the Congress. I have forgotten the fungus name.
Nice pics, by the way.

Many thanks to Jennifer, who provided me with the identification of the
plant. Amazing thing, this being in Malvaceae.
There are also few other images of pretty flowers and fungus (mostly
NSW) if anyone want to comment on them on the photo stream.
