Lake Goollelal is the perfect refuge for waterbirds, turtles and other creatures because for most of the walk the actual lake is protected by bush-land and trees, with one lookout point on the western point of the lake. Always lovely to see the black swans, their long curved necks reflected as they submerge looking for food. The two below were in perfect unison.. I couldn't help thinking 'it's no good sticking your heads under water, the world will still be in a mess when you come up for air' :)
It was the first time I had actually seen the red tailed black cockatoos in the bush, was hard to get a super clear shot as they were really high up in the trees, they are the most extraordinary looking birds, have a look at much better pics here, spectacular shots. This is a female, I would have loved to catch the flamboyant red tail of the male in flight.. one day :)
...and then there was this! Thank heavens Aimee was fully awake at that ridiculously early time on a Sunday morning.. strung out across the path a golden orb spider, such a pretty web, an amazing construction, but the thought of walking face into it, oh no, that wouldn't be fun for anyone! The swans were pretty though, right 😉 Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..
