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)

Feathered Face in the Blossoms

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Feathered face of a butcher bird in the blossoms in my Dromana Hills garden, Mornington Peninsula
SOOC Sunday #97

Little eyes peeking
Sweet feathers framed in blossoms
Magic Spring delight

Isn't it exciting to find a bird amidst the trees and branches, I love it. Your words, as always are inspiring and beautiful.

It;'s a pretty bird. I think you captured its eye very well, which is something I TRY (not always successfully) to do whenever I take photos of birds.

Great capture. He's well camouflaged, among the white flowers.
