Ipomoea Costata, better known as Rock Morning Glory, is an Australian native plant. It is a fast-growing creeper with large purplish-pink trumpet flowers which is found in sand dunes along the coast in northern Australia (Western Australia, Northern Territory to Queensland).

This is the flower of the “bush potato”, a bush tucker food for Aborigines. You cook the potato in the hot earth beside the fire.

While walking in the sand dunes at sunrise, I was intrigued by the traces left by snakes, lizards, insects …etc… which were active during the night and were now hidding in holes sheltering from the heat of the scorching sun.

I find the animal tracks interesting. Some look like bicycle tyre tracks but probably snakes pushing against the sand. We used to get a TV programme, here, called the Bush Tucker Man. He was in the Australian army and it was his job to investigate bush tucker and survival methods. He wore a felt hat with a dent low at the front rising to tall at the back like a shark fin in profile.

You don't appear to be short of light to make your photos. Smile

Thanks for sharing the local information.
