…as in the month. Like, …from March onwards…
I’m going to hunt back through my memory and my photos and see what I can find in amongst the stuff I’ve been shooting since the Third month. A lot has happened in 4 months. We’ve had a *LOT* of rain, plus Tropical Cyclone Ita crossed the coast and gave us all a bit of a touch up. The roadworks have been hampered by the rain, and I have the distinction of being the driver of the first vehicle stuck in the grease (read: bogged) after the rain started in earnest. We’ve had three pythons take up semi-residence around the house (all Mottled Pythons), plus three Kookaburras hanging around, some Rainbow Bee-Eaters and the usual Sunbirds, various Honeyeaters, Pigeons, Doves, Scrub Fowl…phew, and many others. The temps have dropped to the low 13s at night (that’s Celsius for you Fahrenheit people), but the days still rise to the mid to high 20s. We are burning wood in the Fatso Pot Belly every night now. There is a lot of fallen Bloodwood around that will otherwise rot. Better it keep us warm at night :).
The nights are just stunning now that the clouds have cleared. The Milky Way sweeps across the sky, as do the constellations. I often see ‘shooting stars’ when I’m outside looking up. On rarer occasions I see satellites reflecting the Sun, shining as they speed across the sky, eventually fading away as they disappear towards the horizon. Anyway, I’ll find these photos and stop boring you with plain old text.
First up, some random photos post TC Ita:
OK, on to some random wildlife:
I’ll throw another post up tomorrow night. I’m aiming to get a little more regular from now on :).
