I’d wanted to take a longer walk up to the Sugar Gums and see what was happening, but time was always beating me. So this morning I left early. Something nice about the bush as the sun rises, and it all begins to come alive.
But, the further I walked, the darker the clouds became until it was obvious that it was, well, raining.
I’d done the boy-scout thing and packed the “Driazabone” and it is, so wasn’t too fussed.
As I stood under a tree trying to keep the camera dry, Will O’Scarlet came by in the rain for a visit. He looked like a good trip though the spin-dryer was in order.
Not much at the Dam, so I went on up to the Gums.
In the rain I found a collection of Dusky Woodswallows and finally made a few sharp images of them.
But in the end, the rain was the winner and I retreated back to the car. Passing the Brown Goshawk and her three chicks and waving to the Tawny Frogmouth family.
Inside the car was, well, dry.
