See Sasha Perform!

23 Aug

One of Chicki’s  most talented friends is Sasha, the Frisbee-catching dog.

Frisbees have been a part of Sasha’s life for many, many years. She’s ten, now, but showing few signs of slowing down.

Here’s an action shot of her mid air!

Enjoy!

How Cute is This? Feathered Friends…

Feathered Friends

Feathered Friends

Whenever the Baby Animal Stall makes its appearance at the local fairs, I always head straight for it. I love so many baby animals. From lambs to kid goats to chickens to ducklings: they’re all delightful.

I hope you like this photo I took of some sweet feathered friends.

Oh, and by the way, this blog is ALMOST FULL, and I won’t be able to post here much more, so I’ve created two other blogs. Here are the links.

Today’s Visitor: A White-faced Heron

10 Aug
White-faced Heron

White-faced Heron

Most days I see water-birds on the river. They seem to especially drawn to the netted baths, where the crabs and other little treats reside.

Today I saw a White-faced Heron. As usual he was on his own: that is, until a pair of wild ducks swam past. But this was just for a fleeting moment, and before I knew it he was once again all alone.

The First Taste of Spring

3 Aug
Azalea

Azalea

Although many commentators are saying that’s it’s mid-winter here in Sydney. Mother Nature seems to be sending a different message. The first of the Spring flowers are in bloom…

One of my favourites is the azalea. We have seven in our front garden, and at present, two are blooming.

Enjoy this first taste of a Spring in Sydney, Australia.

Cockatoos By the Shore

Cockatoos by  the shore

Cockatoos by the shore

There’s no shortage of Sulphur-crested  Cockatoos in the local park, and they seem to particularly like being near the river. So often I see them there – on the shore, in the trees, or in the sky. They’ve cornered the market in homes with water views, for I see them making nests in prime areas such as in the tall gum trees nearby. Small wonder they always seem exuberant.

Enjoy!

Drying its Wings: A Little Black Cormorant

21 Jul
Little Black Cormorant

Little Black Cormorant

Maybe because it’s midwinter, I often spot Little Black Cormorants,  wings outstretched – drying off in the sunshine. Nearly every day I see a flock of them perched atop the shark-proof net. En mass they are quite an impressive sight. I’ve even seen them interspersed with white Egrets. That is fantastic!

Enjoy this shot of a single bird as it rests.
