Pack your gumboots as a La Niña is looking likely. 🌧️ The @BOM_au has announced a very high chance of a La Niña forming in the coming months. That means you can expect wetter conditions than normal for this time of year. ☁️ 📝 : @abcnews_au 🎨: leighrigozzi (On IG)

This beautiful fish is the Red Indianfish. 🔺 They are endemic to Australia and the only known species in their genus. They can live in shallow and deep waters and protect themselves among sponges that they resemble. 🐟 📸 : Lachlan Hall (wild_lachie on IG)
