Platypus and Friends

The Tidbinbilla Reserve includes a lake with a few resident platypus. If you get to the Park right when they open, you may see one swimming around. This platypus did not seem to worry about the bird activity on the lake and swam peacefully by the ducks and geese. , 4/3/2006

The Wily Platypus

The wily Platypus are difficult to photograph because they are most active in the morning or evening. They move around quickly and you never know where they are going to surface. In this particular case, the platypus seemed happy to pose for a quick photo shoot before returning to breakfast, 10/1/2006
