Skippy

...Stony Creek, Booderee National Park.

For get pushed this week @kali66 challenged me to take a photo of local flora. This is typical bush near the sea. A tea tree forest with native grasses. A member of the local fauna also hopped in to enjoy. There is something quite beautiful and gnarly about tea tree.
