Him, her and their unoccupied house. I’m not sure which is which.
This spot is about half a kilometre from my house. I drive past many times a day as it is on the way to the highway and bus stop for the grankid’s school bus. It must be a great fishing spot. However, it’s only the birds that seem to realise! I always look carefully to see who is lurking about. Here’s the latest visitor.
I spotted this is in a garden I drove past and loved it. I haven’t seen any of mine this year. I might have neglected them too much.
We have lots of these Purple Swamphens that wander around the farm and on the waterways. I’ve never gone looking for their nests or bothered to look for the babies. This baby is black and I found it, by accident, using the big camera lens. I thought the water hens looked lovely, so I decided to take a few snaps. It wasn’t until I focused the camera that I noticed the black shape. I waited until I could get them all into the photo.
Look closely and you can catch a glimpse of my late night visitors.
It was a chilly morning at the bus stop. The bird looked like he felt it too.
I have been watching this swan family, waiting to get close enough to take their family portait. Got it tonight.
Usually when they spot me this is the view!
Tonight they were more cooperative.
I have a lovely wisteria vine outside my kitchen window. It has been raining last week and this is the last of the amazing white flowers that it has produced.
I’ve always wanted to a close up of this bird and today was the day.
