Posted by Barrie Taylor on November 7, 2017 at 7:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Let me introduce our Lizard family. We have two of them one smaller than the other and much shyer. The one in the photos is slightly larger and more out going, he stands still and waves as well as opening his mouth. Any one going past our place would think I'm nuts as I wave back, and a large person waving to a 6inch lizard in the grass would look strange. Thanks to Robin and Gordon Sharp

Pelican's on Lake Boort

Posted by Barrie Taylor on July 20, 2017 at 7:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Just thought we would send the Pelican photos we took at the Big Lake in Boort.

The Lake is hidden with trees, but managed to see them between the trees.

This is only a small portion of them, there were about 4 rafts of them.

In the photos you will see a small island in the background, that is the one group, the others hidden by the tree line
