Just a few images taken this afternoon at Nerang National park. We take the dog up there every now and then, and it was cooler today than its been. Temperatures have hit 52 degrees these last few weeks, so there’s a real danger of bush fires at the minute.

The local wildlife find this weather intense as well, and reports of snakes attacking people and animals has intensified. We keep our fox terrier Billy on a lease at all times, which he’s not totally happy with, but I’d rather be safe than sorry, especially as Brown snakes love basking in the sun and can be really aggressive!

I took my mobile with me today, so here are a couple of pictures of the local fauna. It still amazes me how the flowers thrive in such heat, but they are certainly sun loving…🌻

Have a creative week! 😊🙌🐕🌴
