Watery Wednesday ~ Barrages at Goolwa


The glassy Murray River water banked up above the barrages


noisily rushing through


providing splendid fishing grounds for this Australian darter,
Anhinga novaehollandiae.


Now you see him


now you don't.



All photos enlarge.

Thanks to 2sweetnsaxy we can all join in to this meme and
get our feet wet.

  4. Hi Arija, this bird looks like our Cormorant in Eastern Canada...he dives and then dries his wings in the sun. Does he have a different name down under?

  15. We saw some of your darters at the San Diego Zoo recently. There were two nesting pairs and the two males were arguing over nesting material. We spent some time watchin them. They look similar to the cormorants we have here.
