Debbies quotation inspired image

    “Too often travel, instead of broadening the mind, merely lengthens the conversation.”
    – Elizabeth Drew

Firstly I would like to apologise for not just having one inspired image. I’ll see if slideshow works or not.

This series of a conversation that became rather heated at times. Sitting at the “bar” waiting for your friend to fly in. This is could be how they talked, maybe comparing flights or things they’ve seen. You can put your own conversation to the photos if you want.

In the older cattle yards

And to the new yards

Even some birds have a yard. Satin Bowerbirds hang in their yard and have a dance while singing a tune

A photo of my yard not all that long ago

A peek into a yard in Rome

Some yards are big enough for a horse

Didn’t think of shipyard until the last moment

A bit of a drive through the front yard to get to the house

Please shut the gate

There is always a restful seat in my other yard

White feathers

Bird Weekly Photo Challenge – Birds With White feathers

“What do you mean it’s all about white feathers!!! What are these!!! Well I’m staying”

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo taking a stroll

Channel-billed Cuckoos. A migrant from Papua New Guinea who arrives with a raucous voice. They kick out other birds eggs from the nest, lay their eggs and leave the other bird to host the chicks. To see a smaller bird feeding a much bigger bird is distressing as that little bird will wear out from trying to keep enough feed going. They try for Ravens and Magpie nests usually.

An Intermediate Egret is wondering what all the fuss is about

I love seeing Sacred Ibis wheeling about on the current especially a huge flock….magnificent

Fly….it’s much nicer to have a stroll on the beach.

“Quick everyone….get out of here. There’s an Osprey walking along the beach coming this way”

I had to put in a Pelican didn’t I?

Royal Spoonbills always look serious to me

HI….great to see you

And a bonus Pelican

Is it right

Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Off-center

I thought I’d just post two photos that I think are off-center but a very different. I would like to know your thoughts mainly about this photo of Eastern Curlews coming into land. If it’s not off-center what would you call it?

This is a bit obviously off-center but is it too much off-center?
