CommentI heard this spot was good for the Beautiful Firetail. It is a small bog-hole that fills with water after heavy rain. It rained and down I went. No action until the third day however it was overcast and gloomy, ditto the photos, Day four was clear and sunny as I settled in and waited. Two visitors with the second giving me many good shots. I liked this particular one as it has movement with the ripples and tiny droplets and a lovely tinge of blue on the water from the reflection of the sky.
