Description:

Far too quick for me to catch a metre down in a flooded pit. Will hopefully survive on insects sharing his fate - unless the pit drains completely and he can't climb out.
Fallen/washed into road-side concrete storm-drain sumps where most had drowned. Farm management alerted to the problem.

Description:

Juvenile standing on bloated corpse of drowned adult. Not an easy save: put him on the side for a lateral shot - and the perverse beast jumped back in (3rd pic)! Second save more successful - placed with other survivors beside nearby downslope stream.
One of a few still-live fellows I could save. Fallen/washed into road-side concrete storm-drain sumps where most had drowned. Farm management alerted to the problem.
