Savage River Walk – more vegetation

I was pleased the day was overcast. Without bright sun, the temperature was cool and perfect for walking. The other benefit was the way the comparatively subdued quality of light enriched the colours of the bush.

In addition to the vegetation mentioned in the last post I also appreciate the native grasses.

I liked the leaf strewn and lichen covered fallen trees.

Can you spot a bird on the foreground branch below?  I did not see it at the time I took the photo –it is either an indigenous Fairy Wren or a Fantail.  Knowing the inquisitive nature and relative fearlessness of the Wrens I suspect this is the Superb Fairy Wren that flitted in to have a look at what I was doing –it was probably the male with vivid blue colouring.

The dappled light sometimes enriched and sometimes subdued the colours of the tangle of the understorey below the canopy.

And generally everywhere I looked were ferns and new and old trees.
