The bush in bloom

This weekend I headed up north to my family's farm in country Victoria, where the bush is about to come out in bloom thanks to all of the lovely rain we have been enjoying. The rare native orchid 'Golden Guinea' even made an appearance - I haven't seen these around for years. Could the drought finally be breaking?
And at the end of our visit we came across this lovely llama enjoying the late afternoon sunshine, protecting a flock of sheep from foxes. Not your usual Australian bush inhabitant!
