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)

I simply can never get over the colorful wild birds in your beautiful part of the world. Incredible and a wonderful picture.

Ralph said...

Such a colorful avian! So bold in hue, and not terribly shy about having his picture taken - while enjoying a snack in the presence of a stranger. An attention getting bird, he poses very well for the photo artist!

I once knew a woman named Rosella (truly, I did!). I didn't know rosellas could also be birds!


I am feeling red today—
Better that than blue, they say.

Red is such a cheery shade,
Sweetest color ever made,

Brightens everything you do—
Better red, they say, than blue!

Gemma,Beautiful, vibrant colors; as commenters above, the Parakeet does look as if he is pausing with seed in his beak for your camera.
