Love showing our dogs (Pointers), taking photos and all things to do with self sufficiency. Not enough time to do all though!!

Only out for a couple hours this morning. By 10am the small birds had all gone into hiding. Managed to keep inching my way forward on this cormorant to get close enough for a reasonable portrait shot of it.

Too hot for the Plumed Whistling duck too... it needed to find some shade to lie down in.

I went out for 2 hours this morning hoping to get images of the Purple Swamphens actively building their nest. No such luck today. My throw over camo cover did come in handy for a couple of duck shots though.

This is the Plumed Whistling duck

I was out today looking for some birds but saw this nice looking dragonfly. Only had the 500mm birding lens with me so you shoot with what you've got.

I needed some help in IDing this guy. As it turns out it is a female blue skimmer (Orthetrum caledonicum).
