......in Australia's Northern Territory, a World Heritage listed national park, renowned for its diverse environment, an amazing array of wildlife, and stunning Aboriginal rock art.
Female Darter hanging its wings out to dry after diving for fish. They are not waterproofed as ducks are, and sometimes are too water-logged to take off and can easily be approached.
Climbing to view Aboriginal rock paintings........in 104 degrees! Wet season is imminent - not a drop of rain here since last March!
'Red Water Lilies' along the Yellow Water..................
...........where we also saw many large saltwater crocodiles, the ones that can open their huge jaws and take a person for lunch! When the sightseeing boat we were cruising on was stuck for a short time, caught up in some weeds, we hoped they wouldn't approach too close as they can jump out of the water at tremendous speed!
Heading home across the Pacific Ocean. It's been another wonderful trip, quite tiring, very hot, very humid, very exciting!
