"To muse, to creep, to halt at will, to gaze ... such sweet wayfaring" William Wordsworth
Is that its name: Polygonum? So off I go to look up the meaning ... "Any of numerous plants of the widely distributed genus Polygonum, characterized by stems with knotlike joints and conspicuous sheathlike stipules".So is this a Joan-name or an official name? I really do not understand that entire sentence that I copied from the dictionary!
It is the official name and I don't remember seeing any plants of that description there.
The bird life must have been amazing. And I've never seen a gum like that before.
I can't tell one gum from another ... other than that how they look different. It annoys me that I can't name them.
Oh that first shot is just beautiful.I want to be there right now - right on the banks of that billabong.Hey, maybe that's a Coolibah tree?
Yeh maybe ... after all they are down by a billabong.
Great bird capture.
Fantastic capture of the cormorant in the beautiful billabong! Love this post.
