Carpet snakes are harmless - but of course should still be respected! We took this one to the park to release it far from where I feed my birds and away from homes. Hopefully it will stay out of trouble!

A colourful threesome. Rainbow Lorikeet - Trichoglossus moluccanus. I cannot help myself! Even though I see these birds every single day, I just have to grab the camera for one more shot! (Usually that means "many"!)
I am playing with yet another camera. This time it is a Panasonic FZ70. The sharpness is not as good as with my Nikon D90, but it is acceptable as a point and shoot. Plus it has an amazing big zoom! Inexpensive and fun!

Thanks for coming by +Manijeh Kiana Yes, the lorikeets are really colourful birds - they brighten every breakfast time then fly off to explore the trees!

Twisty and Mate. The Australian Rainbow Lorikeets mate for life. These two are mates and have been regular morning visitors since the mid 90's. Twisty is the bird at the bottom. A silly name, but it "stuck"! We have been shown the many offspring too but they are chased away before the next lot have hatched.

Feed me! A juvenile Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossus moluccanus) plaintively squeaks to encourage Mum (or is it Dad?) to feed it. Both male and female birds feed the young.

A colourful breakfast time. Every morning we share the veranda with over a hundred Rainbow lorikeets - we do not feed them on the table but in the feeder in the background, it is attached to the railing of the veranda. A bird with a damaged beak (we call her Twisty) has been given special treatment for many (many!) years and recently the rest of the flock have decided that once Twisty has flown off that they can come and finish off what is left.

Rainbow lorikeet  (Trichoglossus moluccanus) watching from the trees to see if I am going to give them any more treats. I put out a dish of feed at 7.30am and after that they have to go hunting! BUT! Each time I step outside some fly back to see if I have changed my mind and will bring out another dish for them!

The joker in the trees. The Kookaburra (genus Dacelo) is such a happy fella' that when another kookaburra lands close to him he breaks out in peals of laughter!

Australian Water dragon (Intellagama lesueurii) enjoys perching on fallen branches at the edge of the creek. This one is so used to me walking past that it sometimes does not rush for cover when I come near - which means I can stop and take her picture (for this is a female dragon)

Blue Cheeked Honey eater - juvenile (Entomyzon cyanotis) The adult birds have sky blue surrounds to the eye. The wings are yellow/green so the bird is quite spectacular. It is roughly the size of a domestic pigeon.

Just showing off my morning decorations! I do not need a bird in a cage - I have these wonderful creatures come calling every day. As you can see, I have had to rig up lots of pieces of bamboo on the hanging baskets and across the top of the planters to stop the birds from  destroying the plants.

Twisty and mate - a pair of Rainbow lorikeet  (Trichoglossus moluccanus) these birds have been coming to my home now for twenty years - and don't look any older than when they first started to visit.

Kookaburra in the Tibouchina. (Dacelo novaeguineae) A wonderful photo opportunity but the only camera close was the point and shoot! Sigh! Kookaburras are territorial and our home must be on the edge of this one's zone! We see them occasionally - and hear their characteristic laugh - then many weeks pass before we see them again.

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!
