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)

Still, Still Waters

Watery Wednesday #104

Like painted blue plains
Like a magic blue mirror
Earth's watery skies

Birds look like they are contented and happy just to be close to the water. Great shot and thanks for sharing!

I love watching birds hunt for food by the water! Just so long as I don't think about the fish wiggling on its way down the throat...
