Random thoughts from an amateur Aussie naturalist.
Monday, 21 September 2009
Mother shelduck spotted me as I approached the swamp and started to lead her ducklings out of the water onto the bank. This plan was thwarted by the sudden appearance of a fox on the bank! She quickly and noisily turned them around and drew the ducklings to deeper water. The fox moved away into the trees.
I managed to get several bad photos whilst simultaneously moving to hide behind a tree. This image has been cropped because I didn't have the zoom on.
