The late winter flight meant I wasn't expecting to see much - suprise! The view is from about 6-8km above above Ceres, at a shallow angle towards the town of Worcester. The snow capped peaks are about 1800m elevation.

From the hide at the water hole it is possible to see a wide range of animals that come to drink during the dry winter season.

This rare sable antelope was seen at another water hole. The horns are huge, and almost seem to reach back to touch the shoulders.
