History: After a stroll down to the Sydney Botanical gardens on a beautiful spring day, just killing time while waiting for my connecting train North, I sat in the rose garden enjoying the views and the morning sun. Dancing across the grass towards me is a line of beautiful little leggy blondes – a clutch of spur winged plovers not more than a day out of the egg. Out with my sketch book and camera, I creep close and take notes and photos under the glinting watchful eyes of the parent birds. The slanting morning sun throws stage lights across the tiny dancers as they pirouette, strut and run across their turf stage giving me a show as spectacular as any Ziegfeld Follies review.
