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)

Flecks of Yellow in Winter

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Wild cockatoos' pale combs and a stray yellow flower give some colour to a winter's day in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
Mellow Yellow Monday #22

Icy drifts of wind
Some sombre sleeping colours
A little yellow

Great capture. For some reason I never thought about seeing cockatoos in the wild like this.

If I EVER get to Australia, it is going to be because of your WONDERFUL birds. Serious aahhhhs are traveling from California to the Land of OZ.

Cockatoos with yellow combs! They do brighten up an otherwise dreary day, don't they?

(I'm hoping to come to your fair country in July. Will I freeze to death?)

I do so LOVE seeing your photos of these wild birds who hang out near your home ...
Hugs and blessings,

Nice looking birds. Wild? Used to see those kinds in small cages. Rather see 'em free. Happy MYM!
