Winter’s nearly over and we look forward to a touch of warmth moving forward. This year’s minimum overnight temperature was -8.2°C (17°F) so there was plenty of frost around on many mornings. It even snowed once – this only happens here, 30 degrees south of the equator, every handful or years or so. Why so little snow? It’s our dry time of year, very little rain, and the daytime temperature rises to around 13°C (53°F) or thereabouts.
This young female Red-necked Wallaby, standing in the frost, almost blends in with the colours around her. This shot was taken from inside the house looking out towards the sadly depleted water level in the small dam in the background – the result of extremely low rainfall over the past couple of years.
