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)

Peewee Friend

This little peewee is becoming quite friendly, hanging close to our verandah for most of the day.
Rarely does he seem to be with others.

Black and white beauty
A little lonely spirit
Seeking company

What a lovely bird!! Interesting to see how some of them seem to stay to themselves -- guess they're a little like us in that respect! Beautiful capture for the day, Gemma!

He is adorable! How lucky you are to have him hanging about.

Happy New Year!!

They are a stand out bird - I wonder how far people would travel to see them if they were rare..

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.
