Test driving a little Panasonic video camera for the first time. I love it! I want it! I hope you enjoy what I took with it. All the birds are in my own garden.

A favourite of the Australian bush, the Kookaburra. The laughter of the Kookaburra always makes you look around to see if you can spot the bird.

Eastern Koel (Eudynamys orientalis) If ever there was a bird that makes people want to take up arms it must be the Koel! When one of these birds chooses a tree close to your home and starts its repetitive two-note call, the home owner would happily shoot it! 
When it came to visit me, it only stayed a few short minutes and uttered not one note in that time!
This is a migratory cuckoo that arrives in SE Australia at the end of September and stays through the summer months.

Flowering gums. It is a wonderful time of the year, here in South East Queensland (Australia), it is Summer and it seems that everything is flowering. When I walk around my back yard (I live on 1 acre of land) I am almost overwhelmed by the scent of honey from these flowers on the Ironbark - one of the many eucalyptus tree varieties. 
Australia is a huge country and while I am basking in sunshine and perfect temperatures, there are zones on fire, others in flood and others so cold a heater is needed! Much of Queensland is drought affected and farmers are struggling to keep themselves and their stock, alive. Its a vast and often cruel country.

As I am heading across the country to see the wildflowers of WA I discovered this old video that shows a few of the flowers I might find.

A little test video for the Panasonic HC-WXF990M 4K camcorder. Hand held - still looking for that perfect anti-shake camcorder!

Bar-shouldered Dove (Geopelia humeralis). While enjoying a cup of coffee outdoors I looked up to spot this pretty pigeon high in the Ironbark Eucalyptus tree, I grabbed the camera (as one does!) and he treated me to several poses - he pirouetted around on the one spot! Although not an uncommon bird around here (SE Queensland) it is not one we see very ofen

Crested Pigeon (Ocyphaps lophotes). A very pretty Australian native pigeon whose wings make quite a noise when it flies. When the sunlight catches the coloured feathers on the wings they become quite iridescent.

Little Friarbird  (Philemon citreogularis) has come to visit our flowering Ironbark (Eucalyptus). It is one of the many different honey-eaters found here in SE Queensland (Australia. It is summer with temperatures around 29 degrees C. (A bit warmer today at 32 degrees!)

The rainbow lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) - all the colours of the rainbow!.
It has been a long time since I posted on G+ so I hope that if I have any links to curators in groups wrong that you will let me know.
At my home I have planted lots off native fruiting and flowering trees to attract wildlife. Every morning I am visited by hundreds of Rainbow Lorikeets, so my computer is absolutely groaning with the volume of photographs of these colourful and comical birds! I hope you enjoy the pictures I share with you.

Story
Tagline
Retired from paid work but fully employed by me - as photographer, video maker and granny!
Introduction

I was once a teacher of young children and that has given me the ability to teach adults! Its just as difficult keeping the interest of an adult!

My passion is taking photographs and making interesting videos. I tend to take photos in the same way I take video - I shoot so that I can tell a story.

Playing with computers is fun and it can be hard work. I love it! My video editing is done with a computer, my photo editing is done with a computer and my entertainment is also done with a computer. I am lost when it breaks down - which is why I now have four of them!
