One parent before, leading, the cygnets…
The other behind the group.
A quartet of Starlings dressed for summer,
according to one bird watcher on Facebook,
while another said they were in winter plumage!
It was April 2017 when they visited.
The only thing agreed upon is the birds are starlings.
I can honestly say I have never seen a
starling in these colours.
A quartet of swans.
My contribution for this week’s
Nothing as nice as sliding a cherry between one’s lips
maybe doing like wise with refrigerated grapes.
I often think this looks like a curtain (of sorts),
and this glass elephant is only type of
elephant souvenir that should leave Africa.
No rough water here either.
Cairns Marina….the sea nearly as smooth as glass.
Still. smooth wetlands.
No need for a mirror.
Finally, I just love the way seagulls glide in for a soft landing.
My contribution for this week’s challenge…
Last Friday I ventured down to Port Arlington…
and spotted this group of swans just off shore.
Their long gracefully bent necks can easily twist into all manner of poses to assist with daily ablutions.
Crows, while very intelligent, are a sheep farmers worst enemy during winter lambing, in particular. With ready food being scarce a new-born lamb makes an ideal target. And crow’s target is the lamb’s eye. With a distinctly twisted sense of right, it is no wonder these birds are not loved by the farming community.
The gnarled and twisted branches of this specimen have seen better days and will make good fire wood in the near future.
