A Very Happy & Prosperous 2018 To All.

Be great if we could so easily erase the low spots in life, but this is one way to start afresh.

Sun Up.

My favourite time of the day.

Tuesday, 26 December 2017

Pet Magpie.

This is dad who is 12 months old, and his offspring is now coming to our door for breakfast and/or dinner. They sing to us, entertain us with their play and generally great company.

Merry Christmas Everyone.

A "bitsa" pup, enjoying her bone on the lawn.

Rest Area 2.

A closer look at the silhouettes of the rest area at dawn.


Wednesday, 20 December 2017

Another Lorikeet.

I have spent a lot of time being entertained by these beautiful birds, and taken many, many photos of them.

Monday, 18 December 2017

Another Dawn.

I do enjoy the colour, light and the silhouettes at this time of the day.

Saturday, 16 December 2017

Dried Mud.

This was a common sight around rivers and dams as at this stage the drought was in it's third year.

Thursday, 14 December 2017

Rest Area At Dawn.

These areas are over flowing with people traveling in the cooler months.

Wednesday, 13 December 2017

Ah, The View.

I was on the 9th floor looking down on a very familiar sight .... enjoying their phones not their surroundings.

Sunday, 10 December 2017

Flooded Causeway.

It's always interesting driving in the wet season coming across these, especially when you have no idea how deep, how fast the water is running, or if there are any crocodiles lurking.



Saturday, 9 December 2017

Brolgas.

Such beautiful elegant birds, even in flight.

Thursday, 7 December 2017

More Tropical Rain.

The kids love playing in the rain, mainly it gives some relief from the hot humid weather.

Tuesday, 5 December 2017

Large Sunbeam.

This did look amazing with the dark sky.

Sunday, 3 December 2017

Cane Fire 2.

It doesn't take long to take off, and it is all over fairly quickly.


Friday, 1 December 2017

Another Corella.

I loved watching these excited fellas select a crust and then settle down to enjoy it. Some information on them.

Wednesday, 29 November 2017

Cane Fire.

I liked the sun shining through the smoke in the late afternoon.

Tuesday, 28 November 2017

Water Hole.

It was interesting to see a water hole appear in the middle of no where.

Sunday, 26 November 2017

Sand Dune.

A beautiful time of the day.

Friday, 24 November 2017

Road Train.

It's very wise to pull over and let these fellas pass as they are often cruising at fairly fast speeds, and as you can see the road is not very wide.


Wednesday, 22 November 2017

A Jabiru.

Interesting looking birds.

Monday, 20 November 2017

A Pup.

I like the way the pup appeared not to be interested, but was definitely keeping an eye on things.

Saturday, 18 November 2017

Pelican Landing.

I love watching these birds, they're not exactly graceful.

Friday, 17 November 2017

Outback Rodeo 3.

This fella ended up face planting and missing the calf. I have a series of photos way back on this site.

Wednesday, 15 November 2017

Pelican Lunch.

This fella had just swallowed quite a large whole fish and was just moving it around to swallow.

Monday, 13 November 2017

Fox On The Run.

It was unusual to see a fox during the day and with people around.

Saturday, 11 November 2017

Alpine Valley.

This is in the Snowy Mountains in NSW. You can see how large it is by the size of the vehicles in the distance.

Thursday, 9 November 2017

Flying Jabiru.

They are tall, gangly birds, that I've seen very few of, and never in pairs.

Wednesday, 8 November 2017

Molasses Run.

There was around 10,000 litres in the tanker being delivered to a farmers stock to help feed them during the drought. There had been no wet season for 3 years at this stage, and you can see the state of the ground.

Monday, 6 November 2017

Very Wet Lorikeet.

The wetter they became, the noisier they got, and they absolutely loved it.

Sunday, 5 November 2017

Sunbird Nest.

You can see the size of the bird by the decorative lights next to the nest.  More here.

Saturday, 4 November 2017

Wet Season Road.

This was the road to our fishing spot in north Queensland.

Thursday, 2 November 2017

Dawn, NSW.

I love the beautiful morning light and the colours in Australia.

Wednesday, 1 November 2017

Kingfisher.

I have never been able to capture a nice shiny, electric looking kingfisher.

Monday, 30 October 2017

Outback Cattlemen.

These are some tough, resourceful, hard working gentlemen who enjoy catching up with their neighbours who are often 100 or more kilometres away.

Saturday, 28 October 2017

Corella.

These beauties are often mistaken for the yellow crested cockatoos, but are just as noisy.

Thursday, 26 October 2017

Water Dish Frog.

The cat was a little miffed he had to share the water with the tree frog.

Wednesday, 25 October 2017

Outback Rodeo 2.

There's a lot of skill involved with using a lasso, and it comes in handy when it's time to muster their cattle in the outback.

Monday, 23 October 2017

Outback Rodeo1.

Great afternoon and it was interesting watching the skill of the riders.

Sunday, 22 October 2017

Tropical Rain.

So much water and so warm.

Saturday, 21 October 2017

A Few Puppies.

These delightful pups looked as if they were looking for ways to escape the ute and into some trouble.

Breakfast For Wedgetail Eagle.

I was about 80m away, and so delighted to have come across this beautiful bird.

Sunday, 15 October 2017

Emu Gathering.

It was late afternoon and we were heading home when we came across this lot.

Friday, 13 October 2017

Black Cockatoos.

Unfortunately I was unable to get any closer, they don't hang around when they see or hear humans.


Wednesday, 11 October 2017

Lorikeet Couple.

Lorikeets are very affectionate, very entertaining and extremely noisy.

Monday, 9 October 2017

Shocked Noisy Miner.

I love the expressions of both these birds. The smaller one was flapping around frantically trying to get out of the dish.

Friday, 6 October 2017

Outback Dreams.

This is a photo I took a few years ago when I was working in the outback. I'm sure this place has had some interesting times.

Tuesday, 3 October 2017

Calf Stopper.

Kids do come in handy when you want the calves to stay put while picking up the next one.

Sunday, 1 October 2017

Patchwork Wall.

Good old corrugated iron, comes in handy for all sorts of things.
