Pelicans

Head on over for the One Word Photo Challenge: Pelicans

Looking at others photos of Pelicans, I didn’t know they were different to the Pelicans here. I have a couple of new photos never seen before.

Pelicans look so wonderful as the soar across the sky. Huge graceful birds

Eating Berries

One morning, while sitting at my desk, a Yellow-faced Honeyeater flew along the verandah and onto a Blue Ginger flower stalk.

This is what happened

Look at the lovely shiny berry on this plant

Doesn’t it look lovely. Perhaps a nice snack.

The Wildlife Camera

The Daily Post word prompt: Unlikely

This looks like a good place to set up the wildlife camera with its infra-red sensors to catch the action at the bird bath, or so I thought. It would unlikely that anything could go wrong and I would have a fine gallery of birds at the bird bath.

I didn’t count on the wisteria leaves on the arbor where I fastened the camera to be uncooperative.

Nicely positioned. Unlikely to miss anything. What? The wind has blown up.

Oh dear. Now it’s getting worse.
180504_unlikely_leaf1

This is ridiculous. You can hardly even see the bird bath.
180504_unlikely_leaf2

But wait. Here are some White-headed Pigeons

A Magpie has landed
