KELLY SWAMP, from the south end.  I must concede that only a percentage of Canberrans visit this, the marshy, end of the swamp, but it is the spot to see the visiting waders when they are about.  I must also concede that some observers might note a certain lack of seasonal consistency in this study, but as I always say you can only photograph what’s there, and if it’s not what people expect that’s just the way it is.  We never would have got penicillin if Alexander Fleming had only noticed what he expected to see.
