 Hey!! Who said this guy was only good for bird shots?  ;)
Nicely seen and processed Chris, has kind of a painterly quality to my eyes.

Had to look up what a Tucker Bag was and in that definition came the explanation of what the song, Waltzing With Matilda meant, thus now understanding Eric's comment about shooting in Australia...Love to learn new stuff.

The photo isn't really Matilda, it's a Billabong.   ;)

The two main trees look to me like they're dancing with each other, which I presume was the inspiration for your title?  I'm surprised that you know of Waltzing Matilda without knowing about Waltzing Matilda :-)

I am quite sure as a lad growing up, I heard this song a hundred times without ever actually listening to the words. It was more a lyrical tune of romantic notion than anything else. My awareness to song has always been toward dancing and being carefree, not carrying one's trappings in a bag slung over a shoulder, nor of the poor lad drowning in a river next to Billabong's which for this image would be incorrect as these are Southern Cypress trees and very much alive.
