Ahhhh....!


After a day in the 'jungle' (back garden) yesterday that just about killed me..this is what I hope to be doing today :) I took this shot last Sunday morning in Greens & Co. after the camera market in the Leederville Town Hall. Looking out onto Oxford St. you see some 'interesting' folk walking by, non however as colourful as my gardening companions yesterday. The Lorikeets make me smile, they always look a wee bit grumpy don't you think, but they're really quite lovely to watch and incredibly photogenic. I hope you're having a good weekend, take care and stay safe....p.s. catch up today.....

  5. They are grumpy because you play with a camera while they starve!
    Feed them woman!

  6. Those are extraordinary looking birds. Family in Jan Juc Victoria say it is getting cold. Looks warmer in Perth. Nice shots. Watch out for your back in the garden :).

  7. How abundant are these beautiful creatures, and are they protected by law? I just cannot imagine how exciting it must be to see them in one's garden. I get very excited when I see our red cardinals so I guess I'd be beside myself if these birds were frequent visitors here.

  9. What a treat to have those as company while weeding instead of your common sparrow and the like! Have a fun Sunday with the intellectual crowd!

  10. You might have asked the guy on the left to move his head. I wanted a better look at the Rattlesnake poster.

  11. Oh my Grace what a lovely specimen these two are! Lucky girl......I adore the birds that do visit me, but I yearn for some colourful characters to visit. Zilch in the colour department so far!

  15. We can learn a lesson from the Lorikeets. Look colorful and nobody will suspect we're even feeling grumpy. I like your reflection shot, too. I wondered whether the person was talking to the guy in the outside.

  23. They really are the most amazing bird. Not satisfied to be just blue or yellow or red, they decided they needed to have all those colors! But, I do love a flashy dresser!
