It’s been dry here. Real dry. Norm was telling about when he had the sprinkler on, mobs of birds would come down and play in the water. So, as any self respecting sometime photographer would do, I set up the sprinkler.
So far we’ve had the Sunbirds (did I tell you a pair are nesting in the house nest again?) and four, sometimes five small Honeyeaters. I’m still working out what type/species they are. They’re either White-throated or Golden-backed.
I can’t recall posting this pic of the cassowary I saw several months back down Cape Tribulation/Cow Bay way.
The land-lord decided to remove the trees that grew in our courtyard. When cyclone Ita came through, we were real lucky that the tree near my bedroom door didn’t fall in and crush my room and the satellite (forget the room, save the Interwebz!).
Jack’s doing ok now. He was pining and off his food for a bit, but he’s ok now. He’s keeping a close eye on me though.
On another tangent, 612 ABC Brisbane (a radio station on the AM band) asked people to post, via their Facebook page, photos that somehow make up a part of what Brisbane means to *you*. I chose 2. The first is of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the ‘father’ of rocketry and rocket science. There is a statue of him outside the Brisbane Planetarium, located at the base of Mt Coot-tha, close to the city. I admire the way the sculptor has allowed his image to stare upwards at the beautiful skies above Brisbane.
The second image is of the dome inside the Brisbane City Hall. A computer controlled lighting system creates amazing light shows inside the auditorium that can change in time with music, or simply create an ambience. When the ABC Facebook page chose their favourites, this one made it in.
