Cee-BW-Challenge-Double-Letters

~~~~~

Originally thought that all I had was… 

a passing shot of a Denali moose

for this week.

 

 

Then remembered that Kookaburras

easily qualified.

These are wild ‘pets’

 

 

Not sure if it is a

Kangaroo or a Wallaby

but it found a home in our trees. 

 

 

 

Rosella Parrot

 

 

Just had to include these woolly sheep…

 

Woolly sheep as opposed to these which are

off shears (have been shorn)

about a month ago.

Nestled in the mountains at the southern end

of Australian’s Great Dividing Range…

…is the small township of Halls Gap.

It is surrounded by mountains known as

The Grampians.

 

 

There are also several walking trails/tracks

one of which lead up to a peak like this one. 

Forty plus years ago, I found it an easy walk.

Today, I would not be so adventurous as knees,

hips and ankles are not as young as they once were.

There is also an abundance of wildlife in, and around Halls Gap.

An artist friend of ours has this view from his studio

and often posts images of his kookaburras and kangaroos

grazing on the edges of a small wetland.

Birds from Africa and Australia.

Perhaps a Brown Hooded Kingfisher

from South Africa.

This could be a long tailed widow bird from South Africa.

I~~~~~

In Victoria’s Western District about an hour and a half drive from my home town is the southern end of Australia’s Great Dividing Range. 


This southern tip is known as The Grampians. 

Nestled in The Grampians is the small

township of Hall’s Gap.

Whether one look’s east, west, north or south,

views of Western Victoria’s

undulating Western Plains…

like this one,

are occluded by The Grampians.

Kookaburras at Halls Gap

kookaburra_0410After the response to last week’s kookaburra, I thought that I would revisit these photos.

~~~~~

kookaburra_0393I did mention that they would almost eat out of our hands…

kookaburra_0322but I had forgotten that… kookaburra_0342I had a few pictures to demonstrate this claim.

kookaburra_0394So, hope you enjoy the black and white kookaburras,

from Halls Gap in Western Victoria.
