I took a few pictures anyway - and at the end of the post I have included the only picture of a platypus I have ever managed to get. It was taken at Lake Elizabeth a couple of years ago. I can feel a weekend stake-out being planned for late autumn.
That small floating log thing in the middle of the picture really is a platypus - better luck next time for me I hope!
You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday. SM
