Swan family growing up
The garden’s loving it.
Not a pelican
But I can do the same pose.
Yesterday, I posted a pic, introducing a new visitor to my front yard. Here he is again, with some cold, lazy friends
Wake up and stand up properly, guys.
Here’s the formal photo of the rest of his family/friends.
Have you heard the expression ducks in a row? Well, here are pelicans on a log, in a row.
Look who has come to visit
I have had a break from taking photos. I’d forgotten what a thrill it is to capture the moment in the lens. I’ve been very busy and there just did hasn’t been the usual number of birds around for a while. I’ve speculated about why this is the case. Perhaps the unusually wet weather around Australia has tempted them to go exploring and visit other areas, while food is plentiful. I’m hoping that other theories of disease and general bird numbers declining are incorrect.
I love these birds. I can watch them for hours, while they, in turn, watch me!! I think that this is a youngster. He was posing out the front of my house, showing off to announce his arrival. He knew I was there. I’m so glad he and his friends are back.
Survived the rain
While I was playing uke with some friends today, way out in the middle of nowhere, I noticed something different plodding down the road. What a wonderful way to travel.
The old Murray River bridge at Echuca/Moama
Yesterday, our community celebrated our new bridge across the Murray River, by allowing people to walk across it. It was apparently quite the event. Sadly I was too busy to participate. However today, after a stressful visit to my dentist, ( I’m easily stressed!) I calmed myself with a long stroll across the old bridge.
