Afternoon Visitors

Weather wise, yesterday wasn’t much to write home about. The day was wet cold and grey. Even though it is spring here in Australia, the days have been more like winter. Then, late in the afternoon, the sun broke out, and bathed everything in a beautiful light.

It was then I spotted this pair perched outside my kitchen window. With my camera in hand, I slowly stepped out onto the back deck and started snapping away.

It is amazing how close I cane get to these wild birds. I am rarely disappointed in getting close-up photos when the King Parrots visit.
