This capture shows the monthly data of my blog since I started it in June 2011. It has been a huge learning curve, and I’ve found out that people love photos. Good content is a no brainer so I’ve been working on that. I know you can’t please everybody and I’ve tried to vary my posts, I think I may have hit on a good recipe. Personal blog Monday, poetry mid week and pictures for the weekend. ( I have a lot of pictures ) May has been a good month, I have had the best day, 46 views, best week, 237 views and as of 8pm tonight, Friday 31 May the best month, 820 views. it is all thanks to you, the nice people who drop by and view, like or comment. Knowing that people are interested enough to follow the link makes it all worthwhile. I may be easily pleased, I don’t know but I thought I would give out a hearty thank you and hope that you keep popping in.
We had been to town and I didn’t notice the sunset until I got out of the car to open the gate. Then it was a mad grab for the camera before it changed.
I get up reasonably early of a morning for one reason, the birds are up early. Now I have had a picture up of this parrot recently, flying around the place. He had been sitting in the top of the shrub in the front garden. I had finished my porridge and stood at the sink washing the bowl and there he was. I could have taken a picture through the window ( I need to clean them ) instead out I went and sneaked around the back of the house in my dressing gown and rubber clogs. Not a pretty sight I can assure you. Creeping up to the front corner of the house I put the setting on sports, just as well, the little blighter flew off, one day I will get a nice close up.
it wasn’t all doom and gloom, I spotted this Curlew feeding his face on the grass seeds and doing his best to ignore me. ( have to trim garden as well ) Obviously I wasn’t a threat.
I must have taken 20 pics of him from a distance then I managed to get up to a metre away.
My dressing gown must have swung open because he took off for longer grass. I love the subtle colours in his feathers.
We went to the pub for lunch last Sunday and this mating pair were there. By the look on his face I think she may have hit a sweet spot.
They must have seen me watching them, it was back to serious, stern stuff. “Back off Myrtle he’s spotted us.”
It isn’t going to be a post without a Lorikeet in it. This pair were up a few weeks ago, however they were facing the other way. I love the colour palette of their feathers.
So there we have it, mainly birds I know but I have put up dozens of kangaroo pics. There are a pair of Falcons who hang around a power pole a couple of kilometres away. I’ll try and get them. If anyone remembers the picture of the white ant’s nest up the tree, resembling a strange face, well a pair of parrots are nesting in there, I’ll see what I can do. I hope you enjoy the pictures and I’ll see you next week. I’m posting early again this week, Friday night Oz time we are off on a weekend road trip.
