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)

Winged Characters Line Up!

A gathering of winged characters - 2 cormorants and gulls - line up on an old weathered beam at Tootgarook on the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula.

Feathers of the sea
Happily dream together
Like a line of souls

I never seem to get close enough to cormorants to get a decent photo. I think it;s interesting that gulls tend to stay in groups like that.
