Chicki On The Rock

31 Jul
Chicki, Posing :)

Chicki, Posing 🙂

I may be biased, but one of my favourite sights is our little girl Chicki. Add to that the scene of one of my favourite places, and what have we got? For my money, a lovely picture!

I hope that you all agree 🙂

Off I Go: A Little Pied Cormorant

Off I Go

Off I Go

Off I go, thinks this Little Pied Cormorant, moments before take-off.

Into the wide world…

These little birds fascinate me. They swim low in the water, and can dive and swim with enviable ease and efficiency, often re-appearing quite some distance away.

Now and then an Egret visits our local swimming baths. On very rare occasions I see two or even three.

Here is a photograph of one of these beautiful white birds as it wades through rather choppy water.

Enjoy!

Lovely White Camellia

28 Jul

It’s lucky for me that we live in a neighbourhood where people take pride in their gardens.

Just next door there grows a mature white Camellia, a Japonica variety I believe, and every year around now we all can share the delight of watching it bloom.

Enjoy!

Reflections of a Bird in Flight

Reflections

Here I am again, unsure of the avian species. I’ll narrow it down to two guesses: Pelican or Egret.

Be that as it may, I think you’ll enjoy seeing this bird in flight and its reflections on the surface of the river.

Watchful Kookaburra

Watchful Kookaburra

We’ve all heard about a bird’s eye view…

Well, this Kookaburra seems to be making the most of his…

What a wonderful place to look at the passing parade!

Enjoy!
