At Day’s End

10 Jan

At day’s end: that when I captured this image of a Galah perched in a large Cotoneaster shrub.

I see these pretty, coloured birds from time to time. Strangely, I’m yet to spot one in the local bushland park. These parrots seem to prefer the suburban gardens and grasses. Normally, where I live they cluster together in small flocks.

The dimming light seems to create a quite muted and delicate air.

Enjoy another Australian beauty!

    I used to hear this word Galah and thought it sounded faintly insulting and I’m sure I’ve heard people referred to as Galahs. Now I know it must mean pretty.
    What a lovely shot Margaret, it looks like the bird has colour but is done in chalk against a stronger foreground. If I were forty years younger I’d want to live in Oz near all these beautiful birds.

      Thanks, David, I’m delighted (but not surprised) that you appreciated it!
