My contribution for watery wednesday #42.

There were myriad puddles after the rain last weekend. They dotted the bikeway at almost every angle and it was inevitable that I  got wet and  dirty from splashes of muddy, murky rain water as the wheels of my bike spun through them.

All was not lost, I find reflections interesting as a subject so the abundance of  puddles gave me opportunity to further my interest somewhat.

And when I look at reflection such as this, I often wonder if there is a paralel universe inside there somewhere?




In other parts of the bikeway, the water from the creek could be seen overflowing and covering parts of footpaths like in the photo below.  I am always tempted to cross this section with my bike when this occurs, just for a bit of adrenalin rush … Sometimes  going down the slope to the creek to have a better view…



However, my logic usually prevails as I really can’t afford to damage my camera if I don’t make it to the other side relatively dry.. (though admittedly, I have accelerated down this slope once before, it’s probably best not to know what ensued.)

I went to the parklands today hoping I’d get to see some silvereyes like last week. Unfortunately, none sighted. I guess they have headed to the hotter climate to the north.  It has been quite cold for the last couple of days , so they probably made the right choice. Anyway, I did managed to get some relatively okay shots  as compared to previous attempts, of  an egret, heron, kookaburras as well as purple swamphens, ducks etc. which I think I’ll post in the next few days.

This post is for people who like trees in particular ( if any). I did a little side project whilst photographing the birds today though not much I’m afraid, as the lens I brought along wasn’t really suitable.
