In the eye of the beholder..

 

If you look you can see me taking this shot reflected in the eye of this lovely old galah that comes to visit me every morning for breakfast. How you may ask do I know if it is the same galah each time, I just do. As soon as he hears me put the kettle on he begins a soft chirruping until I go out to feed him and the other birds. If the pussycat isn't around he will sit on the back of the patio chairs until I come out, otherwise higher up on the pool fence. It was extremely windy yesterday, I love the way the galah's beautiful plumage ruffles in the breeze..

... and then there were these little jewels, the rainbow lorikeets, clinging to my hibiscus trees as the branches swished this way and that in the wind.. all the while keeping one eye on me and the other on the feeding activities on the lawn. I never take the sight of these beautiful birds for granted, they are always a delight to watch..

Oh yes, there is another presence that likes to watch them also.. as long as that's all he does :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  17. They are magnificent birds. At my place the doves also remind me to feed them by coming to the back deck or others come knock on the lounge windows. They are funny 🐦
