My birding/outdoor photography tip for the day:

If you are at Campbell Park and decide to spend five minutes standing in the one place photographing cicadas - try and make sure you are not standing in the middle of a bull ant colony at the time. 

The moment at which you realise 3 or 4 of them have crawled under your shirt and a similar number are on their way up your leg is not a nice one. Luckily, either the bites are not as painful as I remember from my childhood, or I was lucky (the big itchy and moderately painful lumps that remain a few hours later are not ideal, though).

Still, saw some lovely birds and it was all worth it :-)
