|Little Yabba Creek near the causeway into Charlie Moreland Campground is a popular swimming area.|
A heavy storm with hail went through the campground the night before our arrival. When we went for a walk on the first afternoon we discovered that the crossings over Little Yabba Creek were both underwater. However, by the next morning the water had started to recede.
We only had a fleeting glance at a Noisy Pitta on the walk this time but we did see a beautiful 2.5 meter Carpet Python crossing the path so perhaps the Pittas had fled to avoid becoming python breakfast.
|The colours of this Carpet Python are quite good camouflage and I nearly walked right into it.|
There were a number of butterflies flying about and we had our first sighting of a Four-barred Swordtail. As usual I couldn't get any photos of the Blue Triangles or Glasswings which flit about too fast for me.
|Four-barred Swordtail Protographium leosthenes|
|Yellow Albatross (female) Appias paulina and Monarch (male) Danaus plexippus|
