A blogger told me this was a
Ginko tree/leaves a few months ago.
I hope my memory is serving me well.
Eucalyptus trees capturing the morning sun.
I think the bird is a darter on these dead branches.
Colours have been inverted in Picasa
to create a negative effect.
Unfortunately those in power, in their wisdom
decided to cut down these Sugar Gums.
Instead of this view there are now
many tiny tree guards protecting whatever
has since been planted.
I just love these big old trees.
And so livestock on a sunny day.
