Flowers & a cat

I picked some beautiful Camellia’s & Lavender from my Mum’s garden the other day, so I thought I would photograph their beauty and then one of my cats “Hardy” decided to start posing near the flowers for me, of course I could resist to snap a few extra Cat & flower photos.DSCN2491DSCN2496DSCN2521DSCN2523

Playing with selective colour.

I was given some beautiful coloured roses yesterday & decided to have a little play with the “selective colour” on my camera. I really do love some of the effects. The single rose was placed on a mirror for reflection.

The Little Corella, Having a Drink.

The little corella (Cacatua sanguinea), also known as the bare-eyed cockatoo, blood-stained cockatoo, short-billed corella, little cockatoo and blue-eyed cockatoo, is a white cockatoo native to Australia and southern New Guinea.[2] It was known as Birdirra among the Yindjibarndi people of the central and western Pilbara. They would keep them as pets, or traditionally cook and eat them. The downy DSCN0153DSCN0154feathers are used in traditional ceremonies and dances where they adorn head and armbands.

The can be very chatty (noisy) and gather in large groups ( hundreds at a time) they can also be quite the fool, hanging up side down from treeĀ branches, squawking and flapping their wings. They really are one of Australia’s fun loving birds.

A Visit From Darth Vader

Whilst at our local park, enjoying a lovely BBQ with relatives from overseas, low and behold Darth Vader made an appearance. It was a wonderful surprise for all the children and Star Wars fans.DSCN0509DSCN0475DSCN0479DSCN0508DSCN0473
