My daughter, Hannah noticed the new ones as she was driving up the road. She phoned and I ran out with the camera and took these as they were almost out of sight. Hopefully mopst will survive. I plan to keep an eye on them.
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 found some swans in a little channel that abounds the farm. I watched them for ages while they posed. I was pleased to photo them in more unusual poses, rather than floating serenely by. Here’s one, standing on one leg, all fluffed up from the back and with a bendy neck.
It’s mid-summer and not as many birds seem to be around, so we went off driving looking for a duck to photograph.
Eventually, we found one and some of its mates. It’s interesting that they are not the same type. There are a few wood ducks among the brightly colored lot, Australian Shelducks.
There was even a swan or two floating around. The ducks suddenly looked keen for a swim.
Just put a toe in first.
OK this one’s in a hurry. Watch out below.
