Skaters

My sister has been in Canada where she skated on a frozen river. The only type of river skaters we have in Australia are these little insects we saw on our evening walk beside Lane Cove River.

In many ways the bush here is similar to the Blue Mountains, I saw familiar flowers, familiar weeds and heard familiar birds settling down for the night but the noisy calls of water birds cutting through the quiet air were unknown to me.
