What's happening in our world? Today I had a lazy day recovering
from yesterday's overdoing it a bit. I tackled the meadow in our
front garden with a line trimmer (petrol driven) and got a small
patch done to differentiate the cut grass from the overgrown flower
beds. Quite an achievement at my age!
Now, let me take you back to our recent trip to Moonta Bay, one
of my favourite fishing spots for fish, crabs, photos . . .
A Sooty Oystercatcher looking for his breakfast at sunrise
as the morning light turns the water into molten silver
and an Australian Pied Oystercatcher, Haematopus longirostris,
is also intent on a spot of brekkie.
Not easy to concentrate on the job when you are buffeted by
a stiff breeze . . .
perhaps a good time to take to wing and find a calmer place.
Meanwhile, the Pied Cormorant, Phalacrocoras varius, is
already drying his feathers
and indulging in a spot of preening.
Look left from the jetty towards the sun and the sea is a
look right and the beauty of the early light and the cleansing
breeze is almost overwhelming,
What are you seeing in this wonderful world of ours?
