So many choices!
Wombat Bend is somewhat of a bird paradise and I could just sit in a chair all day and take photos. Sue and Bill have counted over 100 species of birds that have visited the property. A huge attraction is the two and a half acres of Billabong. There is always something happening out there on the water. I did spend a large part of the day sneaking around trees and the studio doing my best to get a shot of the magnificent Blue Heron that calls Wombat Bend home. Now I did get some nice images today but I'm going to keep trying because I really want to honour this wonderful creature. I will post my best effort in a couple of days. I just felt so privileged to be able to view the Heron wading across the creek. It was poetry in motion, a glorious symphony. How many times do we tell ourselves to put the camera away and just observe. This was one of those moments.
I have posted an image of one of the four King Parrots that were having a fine time feeding on the verandah right outside "The Burrow". There were a couple of youngsters amongst them and I'm pretty sure this is one of them.
