Landed

A corella steels itself to land into a willow tree to join his friends late in the afternoon on the shores of Lake Monger.  The birds are truly ‘in season’ around the lake at the moment and put on a fantastic show.  A few days ago some friends and I were at the lake for a a barbeque and one bird was on the ground playing with a stick and rolling around as a dog would.  Great fun to watch!

While the cream of the crop comes to this site, the ‘still pretty good’ images from this Lake Monger photo shoot have been posted up on my other blog.  I like to create a back story to each of the series where possible and also to put together a more comprehensive selection of images , whereas this site generally focuses on a single image a day.

The absolute best images will for now remain site unseen until they’re included in some of the upcoming ‘series’ which will be put on this site.

Cheeky

Not quite the ‘chorus of corellas‘ that Darren Hanlon experienced in Manilla, NSW, but there was still a partially deafening cacophany of birds playing and nesting in trees on the shores of Lake Monger.  The birds seem to have also taken up home in a tree about 100 metres from my house which is equal parts wonderful and squawking!

Texture study A

A study for a series I have in mind focusing on textures, both natural and man made.  This one comes from one of the many beautiful trees on the shore of Lake Monger, just north of the Perth CBD.

Illuminate

A single detached Plane Tree leaf is held aloft on the shores of Lake Monger in late afternoon sun.
