On ground still wet from recent spring rains, a brown-blazed wedgesnout ctenotus explores the newly awakened desert flowers in inland New South Wales.

Congratulations to Peter Soltys for his image of a brown-blazed wedgesnout ctenotus – our AG Reader Photo of the Week.

“I was fortunate enough to visit the inland of NSW just after some spring rains. It was a magical experience,” sayd Peter. “A place where a few weeks ago you could only see rocks and sand was now suddenly full of life – life that was hidden and waiting, and surviving in the Australian harsh desert.”
