At The Lookout…

The Lookout

The Lookout

Our local park boast a number of delightful lookouts that show the Georges River and its surroundings to best advantage. Now and then, Ron and I take Chicki to visit these beauty spots. I’m a bit timid where heights are concerned. Even the railings are not quite enough… Still, the view is superb, even from a (small) distance. 🙂

How Australian is this? A beautiful Sulphur-crested Cockatoo perched high in a native tree.

Those of us who take the time and opportunity to visit Australian bushland, very frequently are rewarded by sights such as this.

Australian Bushland Scene

27 Dec

I found this photograph in my files, taken some time ago in the local bushland park. It prominently shows a beautiful Banksia in abundant flower, and in the background, a delightful Wattle also in bloom.

Australian wildflowers must surely rank high on the list of beautiful plants.

In the Wild: A Sulphur-crested Cockatoo

21 Aug

The Australian bushland is home to so many intriguing birds, not least of which is the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo.

Call them noisy, call them destructive, but in the wild these characters provide endless entertainment and interest.

Whether gliding, swooping,squawking or nesting, they tend to make their presence felt.

Here is one I snapped quite recently in our local bushland park.

Enjoy!

In the Australian Bush: Spring is Coming…

12 Aug

Here we are in mid August, and Spring is just around the corner.

In our local parkland, the native flora is bursting into life.

Some of the most charming flowers are the tiny ones that cluster near tall trees.

Here’s a photograph I took just a few days ago, in Sydney, Australia
