Can sight the birds in the distance enough to zoom in with my camera, but always anxious to simply get the shot, rather than use that time to check them out with my binoculars. Did have my binoculars with me nearby and I'll use them once I've got my photos if there's time for it.
All the old bark has peeled and dropped off the angophoras now revealing a lovely soft ochre-coloured underskin. An annual rejuvenation dealt by mother nature.
Dollar birds will be heading back to the far north, New Guinea in the new year
First time I've seen this one here before; a lovely surprise! Came to the palm tree in neighbour's backyard, right next the bordering fence. A Blue-faced Honeyeater.
I've been spotted
and so it flew on out to the bush corridor at the back
then the rosella stopped by
thanks for that! It was so worth holding back my coffee for.
Lucky I did get out early in the day for those snapshots because now, at 1.30 pm, the sky is grey and glarey, and a strong wind blowing. Temperature has dropped with possible showers/storms forecast as the day progresses.
