Louie's property has two access gates. The front road is Matrix Drive. We can also drive over the bore drain and along a dirt track to reach Harlequin Drive (the main road into/out of town).
The bore drain is home to many super-fast small fish. Vaughan catches them by setting "traps". They are so zippy that I see their movement more often than I see the actual fish! Vaughan has also found frogs in water, including one of these fellows.
I sat by the bore drain the other morning, just watching lots of large and small dragonflies flitting over the water. I was hoping to take photos of the many rainbow bee-eaters that visit regularly but they were a bit far away. The usual emu trio wandered along though, so I took some shots of them instead.
