It's a beautiful day

Yes, the rain has gone, the sun is out and everything's fresh and vibrant again. Yesterday ex-tropical cyclone Charlotte moved over Queensland to the south of us causing major flooding across much of the north, especially in the Gulf country and from Cairns southwards. We had another 6 inches of rain to add to the 5 inches the day before but it didn't cause us any problems - the Wet Tropics is very used to that sort of rain.

The rain did bring out some spectacular insects - this beautiful dragonfly was on the outside of our kitchen flyscreen - it was about 10cm or 4 inches long. We don't know what it is but hope to find out next week when we have some entomologists staying with us!
