Rise above it.

Even after the sun has come up over the valley, the mist still hangs in a line over the track cut into the side of the hill. It will dissipate with the sun's heat eventually, but until then the kangaroos stay above it. You can't see them, can you? Neither do we, half the time. Their colours have been used for battle fatigues for soldiers in Afghanistan.

But they are there. Tiny brown and grey dots in a sea of grass and bracken with tiny brown and grey dots. They graze in the sun until the valley floor is warmed up too. They know how to keep warm on a cold morning. Here they are grazing for breakfast.

Should they hide in the bracken you wouldn't see them at all.
