9. Birds

Birds are a favourite photo challenge for me.  With so many lovely birds to choose from which one would I pick?  I decided on this one because we don't see them around here.  It's a Gang Gang Cockatoo which I took at Mt Hotham in Victoria.  What a great hairdo.


  1. Oh that's an absolutely fantastic shot!
    I always say you do birds so well.

  2. It's a stunning shot. You've captured him beautifully.

  3. I agree with both Letty and Vicki. What camera did you use? Perfect sky to show him off!

    1. Olympus 620. My medium length lens because it was before I got my big one which is broken right now. Boo hoo

    2. My entire camera is broken right now and they want $1100 to fix it! I am using Kirsten's instead.

    3. Oh no!!!! That's terrible. At that price you might as well buy another with compatible lens. Ask Santa for one.

  4. Two WOWs, one for the bird and one for the capture. Love both!

  5. Hi Joan, your shot is just great!! Well done, we don't see these birds very much and your photo is a real treat :D)

  6. It is a super shot of an interesting bird. Love his hairdo.

  7. That's one I've never seen before! Very 'in' hairdo.

  8. Thanks everyone. This one was clearly a hit.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
