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)

The long skirt looks of a time long ago, when taking time to feed the birds was a simple pleasure in a not so complex era.

My dear friend here in the states has a pet cockatoo that eats everything in sight, she would freak out at all of these beautiful birds if they were in her yard.

Is the weather cooling down for you there as you approach autumn? It's a balmy 64 here today...come on summer!!! I feel the need to take off my shoes and walk in the warm sand.

Have a wonderful week friend...more big hugs!!!

I thought at first they were white pigeons. But at closer look, they are white cockatoos? Great shot!

Amazing that OZ just can let the gorgeous cockatoos in lose.

A wonderful shot! I love the colour combinations. White cockatoos and your shadows in dark grey? Perfect!

Hope you enjoy your Sunday! Cheers...

Love the shadow that is "feeding" the birds! Very clever!

Hey Harriet said...

Love your clever bird feeding shadow! That's an awesome photo. Cockatoos are such fun little critters. You're lucky to have them around you :)

I bet that cocky was cranky when he realised he was being duped! Great shot.
