The tap was dry
It seems this Australian Ringneck knows where the water source is... unfortunately the tap was dry. We had arrived at the campsite part of Rawnsley Station, and were making our way round the camp before setting off back to 'our' bit at the cabins.

I had a miserable time trying to photograph ringnecks for some reason, for this and another try with the next one just wouldn't work.

So Saturday fur for it.... notice how my camera was trying to cut his head off like last week's picture too LOL
