Mill Creek, Dharug National Park. 2nd November.

Today's 22C was more  respectable than yesterday's 35C and made the 1.5km walk quite pleasant. With a sunny rocky hillside and a small ferny rainforest along the creek the variety of habitat, I was hoping, would give me a good choice of subjects. The spring floral explosion had well and truly  finished but, on the bright side, because of the lack of rain, there were no leaches to bother me.
