Desert life

 Ctenophorus caudicinctus Ring-tailed Dragon, Lark Quarry south of Winton.
Male Scarlet Jezebel Delias argenthona, in garden near Winton.
As spinifex ages the centre dies and provides nutrients to the soil - and the perfect spot for other plants to start growing. Enlarge this photo to see a young eucalypt tree in the middle of an old spinifex.
