These were taken at Sandy Camp Road Wetlands Reserve in Brisbane not far from where I live. I work in the city and often see ibises scavenging through bins so it was great to see them and other birds in their natural habitat.
How cute is this little one! I came across her waiting very patiently to be let in. About ten minutes passed before she was rewarded. Lucky she’s a cat because that would have been very frustrating for a human in our world today. At least if you didn’t have your mobile/cell phone with you anyway 🙂
This beautiful creature stands on a rock watching and waiting but there is nowhere for him to go.

While at Kingscote on Kangaroo Island, South Australia, we came across the Pelican Man who came to the jetty every day to feed the pelicans and to give a little talk to those who were interested in listening. I think these birds are fascinating and it was interesting to learn about them.

I found this guy sitting on my clothesline this morning so what did it do? I ran inside, grabbed my camera which just happened to be within reach for a change, locked the dogs inside so that they wouldn’t scare it away and took a photo of it. I was very surprised that he let me get close enough to take this photo. He knew I was there and just sat there posing. Kookaburras are one of my favourite birds next to lorikeets and it’s a real treat to see one when you have dogs 🙂
