What you see when you have a camera!

We were having coffee by the river at Johnsonville when we spotted this little guy.

He was very tentative at my approach, and kept popping back into his shell. So I got the zoom lens out and moved back away from him, to encourage him to go forward again.

He headed off across the grass and unfortunately onto the road. We watched for a while, worried that any cars coming down would not see him, or might mistake him for just a rock or a shadow on the ground. So we gently picked him up and moved him over onto the grass in the direction he appeared to be heading.

He did allow me one close up! (with the zoom lens)

Yellow eyes watching me

Reflective Water

Visit to Lake Tyers today – the water is getting very low, and showing that it really is little more than flood plains in this area.  Boats are still coming and going from the ramp, but it must be very easy to run aground.

Fabulous still water makes for great reflections.




The Nicholson river was equally good for photography

The birds were very comfortable drying their wings and sunning themselves on the pontoon.

The RC club had their boats out



And some of the local boaties were having a BBQ at Johnsonville.





Gorgeous Gippsland indeed!
