Not such an attractive name for this entry in Cee’s FOTD.
For Becky’s January squares, from the beach, today.
The platypus, or duck-billed platypus, is predominantly nocturnal, but as it feeds by diving, this is easier when it is light. They are also very shy and it’s rare to see them, so it’s lucky for me that I rise early.
When I sent out the video, friends and family alike commented that they had never seen one before – not even in captivity. So this little marsupial is my lucky omen for the year.
The next morning there were three of them, playing and sliding into the river from the bank.

Bushboy has asked us to share the last photo, unedited, from our SD card.
I took this at a free campsite on the banks of the River Murray, at Plushs Bend, near Renmark, on December 16. It was around 42C at 6.45 pm and we watched as a young man tried out his jetski.
Still in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens for Becky’s ______light squares.
