A Pair of Beauties: Rainbow Lorikeets
A pair of beauties.
How else to describe these wonderfully-feathered parrots…
Recently Lady Luck favoured me by giving me the means to capture this charming image.
Rainbow Lorikeets are such beautiful birds, and so well named.
They inhabit our local bushland park in southern Sydney. Sometimes they can also be seen in local gardens. In this situation, Grevilleas rank highly in their scale of favourite plants.
The Art of Nature
When I look at the amazing patterns on these rocks, I ponder.
The Art of Nature.
Indisputably, it’s everywhere: in leaves, flowers, birds, animals and so on. Yet somehow these rocks strike me as quite extraordinary. It’s a combination of colour and design against the forceful solidarity of these ancient boulders. In terms of design it is superb. No human artist could have constructed it better. Is it merely by chance?
Australian Wood Ducks
Off I go!
So thinks this lovely Australian Wood Duck.
These charming ducks are less common than some other species in the river baths. The female can be distinguished by her paler head and white stripes over and under her eyes.
Sometimes I see a pair grazing together on the nearby grass.
Don’t you agree that there is something particularly endearing about ducks?
The river beckons…
A lazy afternoon. That’s the temptation.
And what better place to spend it than by the river.
Aren’t the golden highlights of the trees just wondrous?
Don’t you think that Australian natural beauty is hard to eclipse?
Strutting: White-faced heron
Strutting along, focused ahead.
This White-faced Heron surely looks intent on preserving his dignity.
What about the ducks? Are they oblivious to his presence?
Yet another scene from the Georges River in Sydney, Australia.
I see it!
Is that in the mind of this Rainbow Lorikeet?
This beautiful bird certainly looks as though he’s ready to swoop!

I see it!
