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 water
Drinking bathing and playing
A whole lot of fun

I love that there is only 1 with his wings extended, in both shots, he must be the restless one

These are really nice! I love the one that you caught the gull landing. Thought I'd let you know that Mr. Linky is finally up!

Nice capture showing the seagull landing in the first photograph. Love seagulls, enjoyed your photos.

Lovely shots!
They're just all standing around as if they're waiting for something to happen - perhaps a little dip in the puddle and then turning again to look to the sea.
A fun WW.

Looks like fun.

Very nifty - the concentration of the birds around the small watering hole and then the larger picture with the much more turbulent waters of the ocean (?). Lovely, lovely - especially the sharing of the small pond by so many critters.
