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 waterhole
In August 2019 the water level plunged even further leaving a small puddle.
November 2019 another day of rain put a small amount water back into the waterhole
I guess you want to know why this is a special spot?
When the water level is full, which used to be most of the time, life abounds from the moss and vines on the trees
to the birds who rely on the water hole like the White-throated Honeyeaters
Red-browed Firetail Finches
They come in large numbers and enjoy the water hole together, Fuscous and Yellow-faced Honeyeaters
A Scarlet Honeyeater Keeps an eye on me
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
Water Striders make interesting shadows
Hope you liked a view of the Special Spot on my place
