Down by the River.

Decided to do something different this time and go down to the Mary River which is only a stones throw away to see what species of fish we could find there. We have not done this for a long while, only someone forgot to take the bait for the traps with him, not me by the way. Just as well I took the camera for I was able to get photos of some of the wildlife that hangs out around the banks of the river.

Looks like a you had a good day. Love the dragons. We don't have any turtles in Tas (other than fossils)

Thanks Mosura dragonflies are colourful tried to get photos of every species there on that day but some were just too fast.

The last dragonflies are gone now here in NY and I will miss them all winter. They have a special beauty of their own. I prefer your turtle to our snapping came to visit for RT and I am late... Michelle
