A Shag In A Different Light.

I've had to use a reasonable amount of zoom and directly into full sun, to capture this.

Punk Dove.

I think Doves are idiots, and they have quite evil looking eyes.

Red Rumped Parrot.

I've finally managed to get a reasonable shot of these parrots, through the fence railings.

Resting Shopper.

Any medium sized town seems busy to us these days.

Indian Ringneck Parrot.

We sent a few emails to various organisations to find out what this is.
Psittacular krameri is the official title. Although it's natural colour is green there are a number of mutations. This pair may have escaped from an aviary. (and I've had to stretch the telephoto lens a wee bit.)

The Hunter.

This fella and his mate had just returned from an unsuccessful pig hunting trip.

Birds On Some Wires.

We're finally getting these parrots to come down for the bird seed.

Cobar Copper Mine.

There was a freezing wind here and we were a behind fence, so I couldn't get all of the road in.

Things I See ....


This is a huge place, all the graves are segregated by religion, some dating back to the 1800s. It appeared that the Chinese had their own section.

Bush Living ......

We were blown away and delighted to see this 7 yr old kid driving the tractor ....... love the bush!!

Abandoned Railway Station.

Unfortunately it was an overcast afternoon, but I couldn't resist capturing this old building.

Do I Have To Stay Here?

This fella was eager to get going again, despite having spent the morning out working.

On The Move ........ Again.

We're leaving this place tomorrow for places unknown. I'll post some pics shortly.
