AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Your little pal appears to be either King or Queen of the Hill, perched up there as it the world is his/her treasure. The capture is wonderful. Love the little webbed feel and the water moving about is beautiful. genie

I shall seek that special rock in my heart today, since I'm many miles from the nearest coast!
