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)

A Little Splash of Yellow

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ One of many little honey-eaters that likes to visit my verandah in the Dromana Hills, Mornington Peninsula
The splash of yellow on its breast is a surprise contrast with the tawny textured feathers!

Wow. You have such exotic wildlife visit you! We're lucky if we see a Robin or Squirrel.

This is one beautiful bird. When I look at his yellow belly, I think just maybe he flew into some wet yellow paint....only kidding. The reds on either side of the bill and the yellow on the chest makes for such a pretty picture.

The yellow does look like a mistake at first. And I love those red patches. What an exquisite bird, and your photos are, as always, beautiful.
