Thanks so much, Ian. I hope you are having the time of your life adventuring in Australia’s interior.

Hi Marilyn! Thanks for the visit and lovely comment.
Hi Bluebee, Thank you for this interesting comment, as always. Yes, give me a bear any day. At least her intent is simply to protect her family. Perfectly understandable, which humans are not.
Such imposing beauty.
Your words remind me of a friend’s comment re the past week’s goings-on in Australia – plot to abduct and behead innocent civilians on video by Australian ISIL sympathisers – said friend said it’s time to get a gun licence. My response is no – it will be of no use. If someone wants to get you, they will, and you won’t see it coming. Guns will only complicate and inflame the situation.
Let’s hour the man with the unsheathed axe uses it just for the firewood he needs.
