A Prosperous 2014 To You All.

A Corella snacking on some bread.

Some Corellas .....

...... waiting to pinch the Lorikeet food.

Merry Christmas Everyone ......

...... and I hope Santa is good to you all.
These Lorikeets love the sprinklers going, they're natural clowns.

Molasses Bubbles.

The colour of molasses in the sunlight is beautiful.

Tuesday 17 December 2013

Rest and Wait .....

........ for their mates to finish their share of molasses before heading off .....

Solar Windmill.

Thank goodness for bore water for the animals, but as you can see here it's very barren, thanks to the drought.

Monday 16 December 2013


Nothing goes to waste where Lorikeets are concerned.

Home Time.

This lot of cattle had just had a feed of molasses, and were now heading out to where ever they settle for the night.

More Rain Needed.

We've had a small amount of rain, but a lot more is needed!

Jaywalking Bush Turkey.

We were bought to a standstill by these birds in the middle of the wet road, there were around thirty birds in several batches. I'm not sure whether they were food gathering or whether it was some sort of mating ritual.

New Home.

These calves had just been off loaded from the truck into a paddock full of fresh grass.

Rainbow Bee Eater.

A beautiful masked bird.

Emus Hiding.

There were at least another half a dozen emus lurking in this lot of trees at dusk.

Country House.

This was the old school house many years ago.

Little Fish.

This little fella was playing with the leaf around a jetty.

Early Morning Meet.

A couple of old boys catching up, pity there were no fish around.

Last Years' Moon.

An old photo of the moon around the time of the bush fires up this way.

Not The Sahara.

A pile of sand in one of the dry river beds.

Another Soggy Lorikeet.

Since I haven't been able to get out and about much recently, the Lorikeets have been keeping me entertained and sane!

Friday 1 November 2013

Clean Up Time.

More time wasted watching Lorikeets .......

Baby Magpie.

This fella may have fallen out of the nest, it's been wandering around here with very little in the way of tail feathers and has only just learnt to fly.

Monday 28 October 2013

Today's Sunset.

There are a few clouds and rain cells in the distance, but we're not getting any rain here at all.

Monday 21 October 2013

Wet Noisy Miner.

This fella had also lined up to get under the sprinkler.

Various Stages Of Soaked.

They were having heaps of fun, and the noise was deafening.

Shower On A Leaf.

A lot of time was wasted watching the Lorikeets showering under the sprinkler this afternoon.

Sunday 13 October 2013

Grubby Lorikeet.

I'm surprised at how much food these birds can get stuck on their beaks.

Coral Sea Dawn.

So lovely to spend a few days by the sea .......

Tuesday 8 October 2013

Dusty Drive.

I'm surprised at how little wild life there is around here at the moment.

More 'Roos.

We interrupted these two who were boxing one another in the middle of the road.

X Ray View.

I like this shot of a dragonfly on a leaf with the sun directly in front of me.

Thursday 26 September 2013

Tata Lizard.

These are common in gardens around here, only if there are no cats about .......

Sunday 22 September 2013

Washed Away.

I'm not sure how long the new causeway will last if we get a wet season this year.

Wednesday 18 September 2013

Lorikeet Feeding.

These youngsters don't seem to want to get their own food.

Monday 16 September 2013

Dawn Trees.

Such beautiful light and colours.

Sunday 15 September 2013

The Teeth Have It .......

Road Heat Haze.

The temperatures are climbing rapidly at the moment, we've reached the high 30's already!

I Can See Ya .....

.... more time wasted ..... these Lorikeets are so entertaining!

Saturday 7 September 2013

Sultana Sharing.

Lorikeets enjoy sultanas .... more time wasted watching them ......

Thursday 5 September 2013

Blue faced Honeyeater.

They are very entertaining, and are having to be a bit sneaky to get food when the Lorikeets are around.

Monday 2 September 2013

Happy Chappie.

This delightful Retriever didn't mind being tied to a post while his mates were inside having breakfast.

Tree Reflections.

This water was quite a shock to see after driving many k's in a drought stricken region.

Sunday 25 August 2013

Roadhouse ....

....... from 1.5km away! I do like the effect, which is partly due to the heat of the day.

Saturday 24 August 2013

Web Reflection.

Not a lot I can say about this.
