I have been back to the Maroochy River. Not sure I could get tired of it and am just sorry I don't live closer. The Council has done a lot of work there which is much appreciated by the locals, both human and critter. Above is a cheeky fantail or willy wag tail. The tree he is perched on is mostly dead but you can see male flowers of the Casuarina glauca.
I tried to get a macro shot of the flower but it was impossible with the breeze blowing constantly but you get the idea from these 2 shots.
I love this fishing shack, almost a ruin. I think I've posted it before, but, no matter.
I took almost 200 photos that afternoon and that was because I was trying get a focussed shot of one of the terns which were dive bombing the fish. Not many of them were but a few came out well.
Not sure if this guy actually has a fish or if it's the beak I see.
This plane photo-bombed my tern and I laughed out loud when I realised I had them both in the same frame. Bonus! "Plane? What plane?"
Here Mr Pelican is enjoying the last of the sun but I was captivated by the way he almost disappears into the shimmering light.
Time to go home. Another fabulous sunset on the river to take with me.
