AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

What an incredible photo! We only see those in cages in pet shops and the occasional American home; usually an apartment.

Cool shot. The storm clouds add loads of atmosphere to this image!!

Everytime I see them fly over, I wish I had my camera in my hands - do you see any black cockatoos? When I see them, they are always out numbered... I love the look of the black variety.
