I have much glee to report from the past three days (including my birthday yesterday), but I'm tuckered out, and desperate to have a hot shower and put my gym-weary body to bed. Here is a picture of a water rat to tide you over until my full birthday post.
This little guy was going for a swim in the Waring Gardens lagoon in Deniliquin on Sunday morning. It headed for the shelter of these tree roots on the edge of the lagoon when it heard us. "What's that in the water?" "I think it's a water rat." "It is!"
I had to sneak up on it to get this shot and I'm surprised it's so clear given I didn't have much time to focus.
