Wonderful work, lovely artistry! Wonderful photos, well done!
Of course for Australians this is a wonderful, joyful time!
Visitors however should note that some of our native species enjoy the wet as well. Our snakes swim and are best avoided. Crocodiles love the water and the awesome sneak attacks that are possible when the rains come. Dingoes also play well and are not much of an issue but the spiders and such like, all have to find dry ground and it can get crowded sometimes.
Of course this is all good fun for us because we know and love our country but yea mate, visitors need a little situational awareness. Drop bears are generally not an issue, they don't like the water much and prefer to stay up in the tree tops.

lol yes... I was at Pichi Richi Old Willows Restaurant years ago for a Xmas work function and I went outside for a cigarette and was sitting on this bench...after a while I decided to walk to the edge of this little water bank. I turned around and was looking around and up and I saw right above the bench in a tree one of these babies:
And they do drop down
Anyway, everyone else that came out of the door to the area where I was... LOL sat down on the bench and I was like... "Come over here" ... and pointed upwards. LMAO... I have never seen grown men run as fast as I did that night.
