Bunyip State Park Dragonflies

14 March 2011

This was a relatively cool but sunny day. I was hoping for some interesting dragonflies but only saw the more common ones so at least tried to get some interesting photos of them but, for some reason I haven't worked out, many of the photos weren't sharp.

Late in the day, as I was returning to the car, a Copperhead snake wanted desparately to cross the track where I was. Initially I didn't have my camera ideally set up for this but by its second attept I got its sticking its nose out of the bushes and I got lots of photos of it crossing the track on its third attept but with too much motion blur. Yet the question remains, why did the snake cross the road?
