The beauty of creation

Recommended Posts

Having a short break away for the week, in a house in the South West of Western Australia - mid winter here, so a light rain, around 18° C, so cool but perfect for sitting on the verandah, and retreating to the wood fire when it cools more.

(I hope the short video works)

Place is full of birds - magpies, 28's (a smallish green parrot), kookaburra, a couple of roos have been around. Haven't seen any smaller critters, but they are around. Most lizards and snakes will be trying to keep warm, so unlikely to see any this time of year - although there was a small lizard in the woodpile. Not sure what kind as it was darkish and he was quickly deeper into the pile.😂

Relaxing is what we need right now.

My phone camera didn't do justice to the beautiful sunset last night!

I turned to the left to get a view of the fading light in the clouds, and now you can see the pineapple field. There are pineapples in the top photo as well, but the lighting is too dark over the fields.

My wife and I went for a  drive in the country the other day to a place called Dwellingup, stopped and had lunch near the river, and saw these couple of guys.

No Idea what the first guy is as I am not a birdwatcher (after some searching it is a Scarlet Robin), but everyone here knows what the other one is: a Kookaburra. They are a kind of kingfisher, but have a distinctive call, which sounds a little bit like maniacal laughter when they get really into it.

They are not a cautious bird at all, well known for stealing food from the tables while people are eating there. In fact, one of them flew right in between my wife and I facing each other at the table. He didn't get our food though, because we were quick enough.....spacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.png
