My eye was on the two bush turkeys running ahead, disturbed by my approaching form. So I nearly missed the dragon sitting motionless at my feet.
The afternoon sun was hot at my back and the area sheltered by trees from any wind, great spot for a cold blooded animal to warm up.
She sat on the dry track, still and unmoved – not a flicker of recognition I was there – with a little greenery hanging out her mouth.
We are just moving into late spring/early summer proper and the cold creatures are waking up to a new year.
The season is picking up a pace, though still cool enough from winter’s recess to enjoy the contrast.
One of the simple pleasures of being alive in nature, the sense of it, in the space of it.
