Wild Bird Wednesday 148 - Little Corella

I have been chasing these birds for a while.  There have been big flocks of these small cockatoos all over Melbourne for the past month, but I either saw them when I did not have my camera with me, or missed them when I did!

Eventually I tracked some down this weekend - a flock was gathered in a Liquid Amber tree in the only 1/2 hour of sunshine of the whole weekend.  It made for difficult exposures and good images.  It also gave me a chance to use a newish toy - I bean bag camera rest.  I placed it on the roof go my car and used it to support my 400mm lens as I took the pictures.  On the basis of a few photo outings I can only recommend that you get one!

The Little Corella - Cacatua sanguinea - is a small (what a surprise) cockatoo, measuring about 35 -39 cm.  I only really see this bird in Melbourne during the winter months.

Any colour you like ……..

I went to car design exhibition this weekend - the colour scheme seemed somewhat predictable, even if Henry Ford would have disapproved.

Given that H shares something with these car I have also included a picture with him in it!

On the surface of things

The rocks around the coast of Freycinet have a golden cast to them, and when you add a icing of lichen you get some remarkable colours.

I suppose, this is another of my micro-landscapes.
