Chameleon

We tend to think of ravens as having jet black feathers, but, get them in the right light and maybe after they’ve taken a bird bath, some surprising colours emerge.

Starlings on the Slipstream

Perth is a very isolated city.  In fact, that is probably an understatement.  Short of Honolulu, Perth is probably the most isolated major city on the planet.  It’s closer to many major cities in Indonesia than it is the main cities on the Eastern Seaboard of Australia.  With that in mind, it’s exceedingly rare to see an aircraft’s vapour trail in the sky, as almost anything that flies near Perth has to land here and therefore the planes aren’t at a sufficient altitude for there to be vapour trails above the CBD.  The above image adds to about four that I’ve seen in the three years I’ve lived here.

Tiny

This little fellow is tiny in the scheme of things.  The flower is tiny, maybe 10mm across and the spider, a fraction of this.  There’s so much going on in that world beyond our nose.

Crazy Bird

Anthocaera carunculata, or the Red Wattle bird, is a species of large, noisy honey eater found throughout southern Australia.  This particular cheeky specimen was down for a drink from the birdbath while I was photographing flowers in the garden.  Certainly not shy, they tend to chatter and crow all day, with noises ranging from clucking sounds, to squawks and songs.

Arrival

Tiny flowers on the tips of succulent stems prepare to unveil themselves to the world.
