Stampede


I find it too hard to grasp that these footprints were left by dinosaurs millions of years ago.  They come in small, medium and large.  The little ones look like bird prints in the sand.  I am not sure if I am impressed or underwhelmed.

  1. If I saw them in person I might feel the same way you do but as a trio of photos I like them very much.

    1. I really enjoyed this trip, as much for the changing landscape on the way as for the dinosaur destinations. I loved my whole visit to the area - Hughendon, Winton, Longreach and will probably go back that way next year.

      Yes it is worth the visit just don't expect to see any more than what I have shown in the photos. They are in an enclosed area and you have to sit through a long explanatory talk to get to see them. It was interesting enough, and good to understand what you are looking at.

      See my response to Dianne above, there is a tour that you have to take to see the footprints.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Blue Wren

Having finished the circuit at the zoo we settled down for a nice lunch at the cafe. This chirpy little blue wren came close to our table while his brown wife Jenny jumped playfully on the grass. Nesting swallows swooped in an out of the rafters.
Musing:The Blue Wrens and the Butcher Bird by Judith Wright
"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
sure all that hear it must rejoice.
But in the thorn-bush silent hide
the nest-builders side by side.
