Following Broome’s December monthly rainfall record of over 400mm, it was time to see the result. From grasshopper swarms crossing the road, to goannas searching for termites and other prey, the dam is full that wild horses use, and the grass seems to grow a foot a week.
This was a relatively small goanna, but claws can still rip open a termite mound (I call it a pindanpost)
The trees here are mostly Darwin Box, Eucalyptus tectifica.
Tail ready to whip if I got closer. Which I wasn’t.
Millions of little hoppers crossing the road, only to get swiped by cars and road trains.
Fruit and flowers agree with the recent heavy rains. The wet has barely begun.
