I couldn’t help but post one more image of the King Parrots from Mum’s place. This pair were just about to take flight when I snapped them.
Our little girl Juno was not happy to be on the other side of the gate this afternoon when I was out the front shooting. Her eyes say a thousand words…
Who could say no to this little miss?!
Three galahs were munching away in the young eucalyptus sapling out the back this morning. Here is one of the gallant little guys!
I am not by any means a great nature photographer – I think I will leave that to the experts as I just don’t have the patience. With that said, I am pretty happy with my photo for today. I was out shooting our passionfruit flowers when this little guy buzzed past & settled on the lemon tree. I love the little sparks of blue down his back!
The love between a mother & baby is the same no matter what the species. This mum is certainly a good one, protecting her little filly at every hint of danger, and giving her little nuzzles all the time. This is their family portrait.
Our neighbours across the road have been waiting tentatively for the arrival of their equine baby for a couple of weeks now. They had a few false alarms, but in the early hours of Friday morning the little filly made her entrance into the world. I too had been waiting, excited at the thought of capturing the foal in its first few days. I could have sat all afternoon watching her with her long, lanky legs, soft fluffy fur and inquisitive mind. She is just gorgeous!
I needed to shoot when I got home from work today, so what better subject than our new girl, Juno. I admit I had help with this shot – John had to keep her sitting while I ran off a bunch of frames! She is such a happy, excitable little girl and after only 3 nights with us she is just one of our family already. This image has turned out as a perfect pet portrait!
Today was our annual school fundraiser, the Vacy Cutting Day. If you don’t know what it is, basically a rider and their horse have to cut a cow away from the herd and keep it away for a short period of time. It provides some good entertainment, and the horsemanship is spectacular. It certainly beats selling chocolates & raffle tickets! Here are two of my favourite action images from the day.
This little fella wasn’t to happy with John for starting a fire right near his resting spot. He stood his ground and showed us how cranky he was!
