Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have Birds.
These photos were taken in my previous home and neighbourhood, in 2011 when my second digital camera was new and I was still working out zoom, etc. You may have seen these before.
came home from work one 40C+ afternoon to find this youngster cooling off.
name this movie!
and again, name this different movie!
Why yes, I am a little crazy, why do you ask? (*~*)
crow (raven?) amongst the autumn leaves
crow on a fence. I remember trying to get closer, but every step I took had him hopping to another fence. this was fence #4
spot the bird.
rainbow lorikeets in the gum tree
always delighted to see these colourful characters
again, spot the bird. Same bush, but the sun was almost down.
he was singing his little heart out, calling all home for the night*.
I tried to catch him with his mouth open, but always clicked the shutter a millisecond too late.
** every evening one bird would start making calls as the sun went down. One call, then wait for a reply, a different call, then wait for another reply and so on until near dark when he would go home himself. The same routine would be repeated as the sun rose at dawn each day. I wish I'd had the video function worked out so you could hear it.
