I think my visitor (the lizard) from yesterday has gone.....I have not seen him around. Everytime I go outside I check around and under the pot plants and in the back garden but I don't see him. Hopefully he hasn't been attacked by our neighbours' dogs or worse still, run over.
Several years ago we had a blue tongue lizard that hung around our yard. We didn't mind because he kept the snails t0 a minimum. One day we found him flat on the road, he had been run over. I was quite upset about it.
Last Saturday while we are at Mannum the galahs flew into town. My goodness what a noise they made. How the residents put up with the screeching god knows. I have never seen so many of them all feeding on the ground at once. There must have been a few hundred.
I wanted a photo of them all in flight and so Tony slowly edged the car towards them. They all took off but instead of taking a photo I turned the camera off, ROFL. I didn't want bird poop on the camera or my hands and arms. Katie loved them flying all at once. She said "That just looked like a 3D movie".
