however, it may be the first devoted solely to
Balyang Sanctuary, a wetland reserve
within Geelong city limits.
From the car park this tree
is one of the first sights
a visitor may see.
Usually there are birds surrounding its base.
This visit it was seagulls.
There are two…
bridges to cross to the far side of the sanctuary…a short walk.
Often visitors spread a blanket in this area…
and enjoy a picnic, some solitude or the views.
That’s if you can ignore a myriad of birds
talking to each other in the trees overhead.
I find the Balyang Sanctuary inhabitants
provide many photographic opportunities.
Even better, I don’t need to ask permission
to take their photo.
And if I do take a photo, the subject is unlikely
to tell me to delete a photo should they think
I had pointed the camera in their general direction.
