Praying Mantis


This praying mantis paid us a visit, jumping onto Chaz and tickling his neck. I removed it into a more photogenic position onto the furniture, and had a great time with it, until it thought my camera was food. Photoshoot over.

Nesting birds

The ibis chicks are almost looking adult by now, except their beaks aren’t very curved yet. In search of more potential baby animals, we found a nesting coot, a nesting grebe and a nesting moorhen being startled by an ibis. Also some water dragons, looking picturesque on a sunny rock. And a turtle. All in all a good Saturday haul.
