The Creek Crossing gets crowded

I often spot a Gippsland Water Dragon sunning itself on the rocks around the ford across Whiskers Creek.  In the past few days I have seen some rather small specimens and wondered if this implied fecundity had happened.  I think the answer is yes.

This evening there were 4 dragons visible.
 Here is a close-up of two of them.
 This is possibly a clearer snap  of the group.
As an aside, as I drove home I stopped to shepherd a Blue-tongued Lizard off Briars-Sharrow Rd.  It was very pleasing that all the cars slowed to avoid this incident and at least a couple of them offered applause for my efforts.
