Just sharing an extraordinary sight late yesterday when I opened the
front door. I'd been watering the rockeries by the door, and the
concrete was wet. At the foot of the front step were 2 pairs of
gang-gangs, drinking from the ground by pressing their heads side-on to
the ground and licking up water. 

I hasten to say that even though it has been dry here, we do provide an
array of drinking water, including a back-yard pond!
