Crooked Tree and night tour ...

We started our day with a boat tour at Crooked Tree - the lagoon is a wildlife sanctuary and home to loads of birds ... from the cute to the scary ...














there were also the smallest water lilies we've ever seen, they looked like snowflakes!


The real treat was at night, though - a canoe tour with Mr Crocodile Dundee II himself ... the creek was dark and scary but full of surprises ... some birds were surprised to see us but they decided to stay perched on their branch ...






well, even a jesus christ lizard (so called because it can run on water! it's hilarious) didn't blink despite my flash ...

some other creatures were lurking in the dark, awake ... like this adorable baby croc (about 20 cm long) ...

 
 
or his big brother (estimated about 3 meters) ...
 
 
 
it was a night full of surprises, the best being the amazing sounds of nature at night ...
