Taken today

Today was hot and humid. Most of the wildlife was quietly at rest, finding places to cool off. The pelican seemed happy just to cool off in the shallows.

It took me a while to realise this cockatoo was sitting above in the leaves just keeping an eye on me.

The duck also happy to sit around in the lagoon.

The turtle was just surfing, waiting for a wave that wouldn’t eventuate.

The hawk was just not bothered and keeping a wary eye out.

Majestic Mallards

I spotted this duck perched high up in a tree branch. She was spying on a beautifully coloured male duck (Mallard). He was showing off, trying to impress her. Sadly, she flew off and left him all alone.

Landed and having a quiet swim.

All by himself.
