Sydney nightlife

I recently did several night hunts in the suburban parks around here, just to find out that my camera's AF assist flash is completely useless and the only option for nighttime photography is manual focus. Which in complete darkness, even with the decently good head-mounted torch is not an easy task. Still there are some in-focus images, which I wanted to post before I left. Another difficulty were the glowing red eyes, which look like alien projectors. It takes quite a lot of time to retouch the pupils and make them look at least a bit natural...
