My first trip out after the fever, I managed a few hours at the end of the day in the padifields.
I don't know what this grass is called, but it is stunningly beautiful in the late afternoon sun.
I guess this is the flower of the kapas (or wool) tree. It's used to stuff pillows locally.
Sometimes shooting into the sun can produce some pleasing results, like this pond-heron in the padi stubble.
Or this Intermediate Egret, caught at the critical moment!
The cloudless blue sky gave way to a peachy sunset as the egrets gathered to roost.
And a perfect full moon rose in a velvet dusk.
There can only be one caption for these photos - Over the moon!
A few days after this, I took some more shots of the moon over my house.
Looks like it could do with some acne cream!
