DAISY HILL FOREST

I have been walking in the Daisy Hill Forest (Its real name is Daisy Hill Conservation Park) since about 1972 and I never get sick of doing that. I love looking for new things to photograph everyday.
 One of the creeks. It is just a waterhole now because we haven't had much rain.

 This is a Curlew protecting its chick from me. Look hard you can see two little legs coming down from the parent's wing.

 Spooky spider

 My walking buddies in the sun rays


Another waterhole sometimes called Billabongs.


Sometimes we do an afternoon walk. That is our village through the trees.

  7. You have a wonderful place so close by to walk in, Diane. The sun rays coming through and highlighting your companions was my favorite shot, but not so much that spider in its rather intricate web. I did see the feet of the young curlew too.

  8. I was looking for a Jolly Swagman camped by the billabong. Didn't find him though! I love that orange fungus on the tree.

  11. I rather envy you that walk and the shade from the heat. I have a beautiful walk from my house but I am so often deterred by the need to get kitted out in wind and waterproofs in order to face it. It's exercise but not fun in that weather.
