A sunny break

We have had 350mm of rain so far this month and everything is saturated, so it was nice to get a break today, with the sun out and a pleasant breeze to keep the humidity down. This afternoon I noticed some of our local wildlife making the most of the break from rain.

This Bullant caught my eye as it worked its way towards the nest dragging a moth that was considerably larger and a difficult shape to manoeuvre through the leaf litter but finally made it to the nest entrance.
Just nearby one of the Lace monitors was taking a break on our steps where it had the last of the afternoon sun before moving off as it disappeared.

Whilst the sun had gone behind the trees high above in the sunshine our resident Wedge-tailed eagles circled in the breeze gaining height before gliding off .
