Well I got up this morning and went to loo and it needed emptying, so nice job for Don before breakfast. 😦 Had breakfast after I did my Tai Chi as I don’t walk on a Sunday. Had a early morning swim. Then I noticed a cicada on Dons coat, they have been leaving their shells everywhere but this one was in metamorphosis. So we set up our cameras and sat for one and a half hours taking shots of changes as they happened, it was very interesting and amazing. Then in the blink of an eye looked up and its gone. Had another swim then got ready to go down to the rocks at the beginning of the hill. Beautiful spot, be great camping there. Another option. The young couple that stayed last night gave us a toot as they left. After they’d gone I had a dip, so nice. Stand in the sun and dry off. Had wraps for lunch, downloaded photos. Flies are really bad today. Brothers are back, going up to the shed at Zo and Eds doing garlic. Going to the platypus again tonight at 5 pm. Didn’t see the platypus but did get shots of the kingfisher. Beautiful full moon and reflection on river. Got a fire tonight, Don is enjoying a port out there so I’m finishing the days diary and to bed I go.
Down at the bend. This calf was having to eat on the run, mum wouldn’t stop, it was hanging on. Finished its metamorphosis. We watched it dry out and and then it was gone. Both wings now fully opened. Straightening out the wings. Out of its shell. Coming out of the shell.
Cicada ready to start metamorphosis,
