Western Eyre Peninsula Coast

I have almost forgot where I have been it has been so long since I processed my photos. I am sitting on the West Australian border catching up on all my photos. The first stop is from the Calpatanna Conservation Park, where I camped for the nignt. Not much there at all. The water holes are all dried up.

Bobtail lizard

I have seen so many bobtail lizards on the road. I do not know if they are sunning themselves or just crossing the highway. Three of the four sub-species live in West Australia.
