Outside my Back Door

There are times I am so amazed at what I find just outside my book door. But then I shouldn’t be, as I am a firm believer in the saying: “There are a thousand pictures within ten minutes of home.”

The first image is of an Australian King Parrot which was no further than ten metres from my back door. I saw him land in the Wattle Tree and start feasting on the seeds.

The next image is of a butterfly taking nectar and was no more than three metres from the back door.

I'm not very good at identifying butterflies. I believe this is an Australian Painted Lady - but feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

And of course the busy bees were buzzing near the butterfly.
