Special Spot

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #78: Special Spot Shots

A special spot on my place is the waterhole.

This was in October 2018 in the middle of this three year drought. This was the lowest water level I had ever seen.

Then in November there was rain on one day which put water into the waterholewaterhole_named_home_oct 2018
In August 2019 the water level plunged even further leaving a small puddle.190816_blog_challenge_yellow_waterhole

November 2019 another day of rain put a small amount water back into the waterhole

I haven’t been down there when any animals have come to drink. My clomping through the bush or the sound of Old Smokey the farm ute alerts them and off they go. I have found fish in the water and there has been signs of Crayfish. The water usually has a variety of insects.

Always a Dragonfly or two flitting about
