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

Black Cockatoos.

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

Lorikeet Couple.

Lorikeets are very affectionate, very entertaining and extremely noisy.

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.

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.

Calf Stopper.

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

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

Not Gloria's Friend.

This ewe stands at the fence and bleats, so much so it could be called harassment. Gloria doesn't get a look in if there's a slice of bread in sight.

Triple Trouble.

Enjoying some rare sunshine before the next burst of energy.

The Hay Shed.

Not a lot left at present as some was moved out so the calves could be housed there until big enough to be moved to greener pasture.

Sunday, 17 September 2017

Waxeye.

I was about 20m away and hiding behind the front door. They are beautiful and are quick to take off.

Essential stuff in the milking shed.

The Rooster.

Such a beautiful fella, very confident and he does look after his two ladies well.

The Old House.

This house has been standing for a very long time, and I'm sure there is quite a history attached.

Wednesday, 6 September 2017

Yum .... Milk.

Such messy fellas ........

Tuesday, 5 September 2017

Tolerant Ewe.

The lamb was like this for ages, they both fell asleep at one stage.

Cat Portrait.

The feral kitten has become a little friendlier of late.

Tuesday, 29 August 2017

Lamb Gang.

Great time wasters ..... lambs when they discover each other and boy can they run. I was about 120m away.

Sunday, 27 August 2017

Honeycomb.

Fascinating, and an example of how amazing nature is.

Thursday, 24 August 2017

Well Weathered.

The door to a very old cupboard.

Back Lit Honeycomb.

The sun is back lighting this piece. I'm looking for something I can do with the large piece I've been given.

A "Prettier" One of The Species.

I'm not quite sure what it is about this ewe, she certainly has softer features, her coat is fluffier, and she stops and watches what is going on.

Sunday, 13 August 2017

Aah ....... Sunshine ....

Sunshine is a rare commodity around here at present.

Friday, 11 August 2017

Ewe's Safe Distance.

Mum finally stopped and turned around when she felt she had enough space, despite there being a fence between us.


Wednesday, 9 August 2017

Gloria Again.

Forever hopeful that an endless supply of bread will fly over the fence.

New Twin Lambs.

These are brand new, and their mum got them up and on the move fairly quickly.

5 Minute-Old Lamb.

I was about 25m away and enjoyed watching the mother care for her new born.

Saturday, 22 July 2017

Last Bit Of Snow.

This is all that was left after rain came through.

Thursday, 20 July 2017

The Sheds.

They look a little desolate at present.

Tuesday, 18 July 2017

Lamb Twins.

Fortunately these guys were born a few days before the snow, you can see the remains of it on the grass. I love the marking on the lips of their mum.


Sunday, 16 July 2017

The Old Oak.

Looks sad and cold with no leaves and the snow around.


Saturday, 15 July 2017

Cold Sheep.

I think this is the first time these sheep have seen snow.

Thursday, 13 July 2017

Yuk, Snow.

This is what we woke up to this morning! Every five years they say this happens ............. hmmmmm.
