We headed off to our favourite holiday haunt again this week and took the Mr along as well. We decided to do the Sanctuary wetlands walk and are so happy we did, as we were rewarded with Platypus action viewed from a board walk which was just amazing! We also saw a pair of black swans in the reeds and we suspect they may have been building a nest. The photo below is one of the platypuses/platypi/platapodes surfacing. (There is a grammar lesson in there, when considering what to call multiple platypus. Google each term for fun ) We watched this one for well over 10 minutes. It was a gorgeous day and we all had a great time.
I have been to the orchid hot house at the Botanic gardens this week too, I'll try and share that soon. I'm excited about a new lens I bought that is en-route right now, its a Canon 70-200mm f4 so I hope to be sharing some pretty bird life with you soon.
