Coloured Life

They will call out when they are hungry, knowing there is food to be had here at times.

And that is most I see them, with so little rain to water their usual feeding grounds.

And the Noisy Minah, a local character with a demanding way, as she swoops on my head.

Clack, clack, clacking her orders at me. Sometimes touching my hair as she goes.

For a little food, for her and her young. We know each other over generations now.

    Amazing photos! I’ve never seen a wasp with that eye color. Very unusual.

      We must be looking at different images. No wasp here, but I do remember one with a blue eye from recent times.

    Gorgeous birds, beautifully captured in these images. I fondly recall rainbow lorikeets from a six-month stay in Australia when I was a girl.

      They are … and still here for now. Thanks Cate.

    Great colors and nicely captured. I like the yellow on the minah bird too.

      Sitting ducks … but they are beauties, our feathered friends.
