CommentA pair with a single chick inhabited a single paddock adjacent to Bollon township in Queensland. The paddock was noteworthy in that there was a ground layer which features in the image. The paddock excluded goats. For hundreds of kilometers around this single paddock, the ground layer had virtually totally disappeared in the big drought and as a consequence of goat grazing. The adult is about to feed a preying mantis to the the juvenile. The extensive yellow staining on the adult and the juvenile come from the yellow-coloured water in the paddock dam.
