Weekly Photo Challenge-Prolific

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Prolific

~~~~~

The first thing which came to mind were cockatoos.

They often descend on our front or back yards

and proceed to dig it up in search of sustenance. 

 

 Not that any of them appear under-nourished. 

At least this variety, the Corella,

does not appear to be as noisy as its

cousin the Sulphur Crest.

Down under these are fairly prolific also.

I think we used to have more sheep than any other country,

however, Google tells me that China now has that honour.

Finally, one of our most memorable game drives in Botswana.

 We drove for five or six kilometres with a constant wall

of elephants progressing right to left.

The bumps on the horizon are also elephants.

Our guides estimated there were at least 1,000 elephants

in this sighting alone.

Truly a magnificent experience.

It’s going to be one of those weeks.

I thought Monday was Sunday

and I was thinking today was only Tuesday

only to realise most of Wednesday has past!

corellas_0066I found these Cockatoos, Corellas,

in an old tree some weeks back.

cranes_6672Instead of going out in the wee hours of this morning, on

the off-chance we could see Aurora Australis (Southern Lights)

from here, I got an early start for sunrise.

Alas even though there was some cloud around

the sunrise was not as good as hoped for.

However, I did spot three cranes on this ship,

AND only spotted three tug boats upon

loading pics to my computer

AND I am going to claim three jetties/piers

in the foreground.

Edit: I have just realised there are three different threes in this photo !!!!

Odd Ball

Week 2

~~~~~

Recently we had a visit from around one hundred cockatoos…corellas to be precise.

corella_3588They proceeded to aerate our front yard…
corella_3589burrowing down as far as their beaks would allow.

corella_3590I have often seen them in large numbers while living on the farm, but have never been this close to them.
