One day at the lookout

HI. My name is Ashighasa. I’m a kite. No not that sort of kite like the ones we saw in the Flying Working Dog, but a kite, you know, like the bird kite. Well, anyway, I found this fantastic spot to sit and watch the world go by, and while I’m at it, to maybe spot dinner.

Image

It’s a great lookout. I get up here all by myself, no competition for finding something to eat. Just me and all I can see. Such a good life.

Image

Hey!! Where did you come from? Turn you head for just a minute and look what happens!

Image

OK buddy, you can stay but just sit there and don’t copy what I do or I’ll get upset. OK Bird!
Sure thing pal.

Image

You got that bird!!
OK mate, I’ll just look over here. I’m sure there is something happening over here.

Image

Image

Hey!! You!! What do you think you are doing? What did I say!!
Me? What did I do? I’ve been looking over here for ages.

Image

I told you before. Don’t copy me.

Image

Look bird. I am serious about you being up here on my lookout. You have to do whatever I say!!

Image

He he he

A few thing about April

A couple of time over the past week I have been at the beach. It was very overcast and not all that inviting but usually there is something on the beach that gets my attention. I would have loved to photograph the kangaroos on the beach but high on the headland would have to do.

Image

There’s something about the water, sand and light that I see but can’t quite get what I want on a photo.

Image

A rock full of molluscs always attracts attention.

Image

While eating lunch, a Kookaburra came over to closely check us out.

Image

The Emerald Dove is so funny. Just walks up the garden path to discover what’s in and around things, sometimes to get a drink out of a saucer under a pot plant.

Image

The Black-chinned Honeyeaters were ever so cute when they had a washing session.

Image

The Satin Bowerbird was very vocal while perched above the dam.

Image

THe rain has been a blessing, bushes started to flower. The Chinaman’s Hat is a bit rude….I think I have been flipped off by a flower

Image

I love finding insects and spiders in flowers especially when they are so small that you often miss seeing them as you walk by.

Image

The rain also bought out some interesting fungi. Everyone knows how much I love fungi. This fungi blog is full of them. I have never seen a cup-shaped fungi before.

Image

And it was so white.

Image

See you next time.
