THE FOREST CHORUS

I went for my morning walk in the forest.


I liked how the light danced on the plants.



Mother  is camera shy but not Joey craning his neck out of the pouch to see what I was doing.

As I walked along the cicada chorus entertained me. The noise is deafening. Turn your volume up to get the idea. there is a crescendo in the middle

  8. I'd love to be able to see kangaroos and their joey's while taking a walk near my home! :-) The cicadas really are deafening. We have them here.

  9. Beautiful! I lived in Daisy Hill for my first year teaching but didn't know about the Conservation Park (maybe it didn't exist then - or maybe it's the name of the bush drive I would take to school??).

  16. I wished I could meet a kangaroo in the woods, which btw is quite noisy ! It sounds as if you let out the air of a baloon !

  17. Our cicadas seem to do their thing in late Spring. They went on for a month noisy as anything but have been silent for weeks now.

  18. Oh yes the cicadas can make quite a din :) I love your early morning shots Diane, the macros are excellent.. So the best time of the day for a walk, when everything is fresh.

  23. WOW!!! That was a deafening cicada sound! I probably won't hear them here in Colorado--I doubt they can live in this climate
