We were fortunate enough recently, to enjoy a few wonderful days
living in a timber cottage on 25acres in the Australian bush
We spotted many native birds including this one which was huge.
The Flora became more dense as we went further into the bush, and the colours so vibrant.
The beautifully brightly coloured Lorakeets came down to the drinking bowl, even when we were very close, sitting on the deck having breakfast. I especially loved the little blue wrens.
The bark on the gumtrees was beautiful
These gorgeous plants are called Black Boys and their flower is a long black spike that comes straight up through the middle. If you look closely, there is a Kangaroo,right in the centre of the photo,standing up watching me. They blend in with the grey bush.
A little Wren
On our last day,we were sitting inside having breakfast,as it started to rain,when suddenly,a whole family of Kangaroos came quite near to feed, including mum,dad,teenager and a quite large Joey who jumped into his mums pouch. It was so funny ,as his long legs were sticking out. I don't know if you can see them in this picture, as I took the photo's through the window,so as not to startle them.
