and the rain came down.....

Finally it appears that our Wet Season has begun. A little later maybe than the last couple of years, but nevertheless it has arrived with it's usual gusto and threats of floods, storms and cyclones. Hurrah!
Actually the only excited ones are the frogs, who immediately turned out in their hundreds and thousands and began to call for mates.

These wonderful displays by the Northern Dwarf Tree frogs are coupled with loud choruses as they vie for the chance to couple with a female and as you can see below this fellow was rewarded for his efforts!
