Lazy afternoon

It is the Australian wood duck, in a pair, foraging the grassland. The late afternoon sunshine, spray irrigation in whirls of water for lawn care, creek grass straight up in the bank of frog habitat, cattle were grazing on the same route.  Next to the fence, dumped hay was built up as home by the toads as warm, soft bed.

Tussock grass lives under the tall eucalyptus, together the pinky seed pods and yellow bark, a mixed hue of nostalgia imprinted in the land of Australia.

Long grass and dry thistle head, a life of wild growth and decay, exchanged their life role to feed the cattle.

Grazing on its own pace…galahs not coming now, egrets not dropping around.

Dusk is a curtain of pink and blue veil.
