The past month saw some decent rain fall on country, causing some creeks to swell and flow and life, as it does, making the most of it and blossoming.
It was a pleasure and a privilege to spend three days enjoying it all.
The top right picture has a young perentie (Varanus giganteus), sitting on rock ledge to the left of the water. Zoom in to see it. I startled it as I was walking back to camp. It jumped, took one look at me, poked its tongue out and kept going about its business.
The upper middle of the centre panel, is a fruiting wild currant (Psydrax latifolia).
This the first time (after more than 10 years) I’ve seen one with fruit on it. The black fruit is ripe and easily comes away from the branch. It’s very sweet with a unique flavour, most similar (to me, anyway) to a blueberry.
In my palm is the seed in the middle of each fruit.
