House Guest

This little cutie has been hanging about my kitchen windows. I believe it’s  a South Eastern  Striated Pardalote. And I’m assuming male due to the bright colours.



A Sunday Morning Stroll

An over cast Sunday Spring morning. Thought I’d take the camera up to the park. Turns out this park is called Phillips Garden and there were loads of beautifully coloured roses. 
Lots of bees out collecting pollen. 
These street lamps are everywhere in Maryborough (Victoria), and they always make me think of Narnia.
This Nana brought her twin grandchildren out to feed the ducks some breadcrumbs. Needless to say, both children and ducks had a blast. 
This gorgeous duck had something stuck in it’s feathers. When I was taking photos, I was hoping it was just a leaf. But when I got home and zoomed in on a photo it looks suspiciously synthetic. Hope the duck is ok!

A belated post of my Saturday exploring. Daylesford in Country Victoria.

Went to Daylesford (Vic, Australia) with the camera and hiking shoes on Saturday. Checked the camera battery before going and it was apparently full. Get to Daylesford and it was at 2/3 full. But lucky it happened on a day where the wind was giving me ear aches, so I wasn’t going too far from the car anyway.
A very cheerful and quaint looking residence.
Relaxation and grooming time.
When they thought I may have some food for them. (Because another guy had just fed them)
When they realised I didn’t have anything for them.

After my wander with the camera, I went and checked out the book store. Perfect shop for a rainy day! And I can now recommend the pastry king bakery for a good cup of coffee.


This the one of the canola fields in Moolort. As you drive through it looks like they just grow fields of sunshine.
