Australia: Birds n Frogs

[subscribe2]

A couple of shots from the garden. A Sacred Kingfisher (Todiramphus sanctus) that is a seasonal visitor, and a small Motorbike Frog (Litoria moorei) hanging out in a vegetable bed.

These were from a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 that was over a year out of date. It’s possible the colours have shifted slightly as a result.

It’s worth having a listen to the Motorbike Frog’s call if you’ve not heard it before: http://museum.wa.gov.au/explore/frogwatch/frogs/motorbike-frog

Australia: Various shots from the Garden

A few shots from the garden here in Denmark, Western Australia, including of the Sacred Kingfisher that visits each year. Oh, and one of a Sooty Oystercatcher from the foreshore.

Australia: Rainbow Bee-eater

At this time of year the rainbow bee-eaters migrate southwards. A few pairs take temporary residence in the Canning River Regional Park, which is at the bottom of my road. I took my camera down there yesterday in the hope of seeing them and was lucky enough to catch one on a low branch. I could watch these birds for hours. They are amazing in flight, and also make lovely chirrup sounds to each other, which is very cute.

This homeless gentleman is always here.  I sometimes give him a couple of dollars. Sometimes a little food. He refuses pork because he is Jewish. Sometimes, more often than not, he looks in a bad way. Once he’d been beaten up.
