Late winter is producing warm, sunny days, and while the harsh sunlight is perhaps not perfect for photography it’s awesome for wandering around outside with a camera. A jumper during the day is no longer necessary; sunblock, however, is. I watched this cormorant for quite a while, getting a shot just as it was flying off. It didn’t go far; it was mostly after a higher spot from which to watch the world go by. Note that the chosen tree is still devoid of any greenery.
This Eastern water dragon did what lizards do best: sun-bathing, while this moorhen preferred to stay in the shade.
A waterfall afforded the opportunity to play with manual settings. Give a waterfall a long enough exposure and the water droplets should look like long streaks. This is limited not so much by the minimum available aperture but by how long I can hold the camera steady-ish. This turned out to be one-fifth of a second. Any longer and a tripod will be required.
