...seen on the lake yesterday

Location: Lake Macquarie, N.S.W.

Was heading to Wangi Wangi (pronounced wonjee) to meet up with a cruise on the lake, even though the forecast weather wasn't so brilliant with  'possible showers'.  Had decided I wouldn't need the heavier tele-converter lens on my camera; I wasn't going 'birding'.

On my way, and whilst driving past Wangi Point/Myuna Bay;  saw the swans were out there.  First time I've seen swans in that area, so had to pull up and take some shots.  That kind of hurt when I didn't have the big lens with me.  (Note to self .. you know what it read).

while waiting at the jetty to board

Intermediate Egret

a total surprise!!  There were two dolphins came alongside the boat for a moment, not long before the heavens opened up.

When the boat pulled into the jetty at Gwandalan for lunch, a 'Lesser Crested' Tern?

the black swans were beautiful, but that shot of the sailboats in the marina... wow!!! loved the monochromatic-ness of the dolphin photo because of the heavy gray skies!

Hardly a disappointing bunch of shots, Carole. Especially that egret.

I know this was about the birds and somebody not bringing their BIG lens with them, but I really like the dolphin photo.

Beautiful are the black swans, Carole.
The dolphin beside the boat is really great.
Here there are no dolphins, unfortunately.
