Lotus flowers

There are masses of lotus flowers at Fogg Dam and also on Yellow Waters billabong in Kakadu National Park. They are beautiful when they’re flowering but there seed pods are also beautiful once the petals have blown away.

The Spoonbill and the Jabiru

The Jabiru is a local emblem and his vivid midnight blue/green neck is quite exquisite. This photo was taken a while ago at Fogg Dam about an hour south of Darwin.
