Mr Skittles


A Rainbow Bee Eater.  So much color for such a little package. Mr Skittles is the name a friend gave this bird after the colorful candy.

Gulls


I don't know if you can call them "sea" gulls as they are miles from the sea.  They live on Lake Mulwala and beg for crumbs or whole pieces of bread form any picnickers at the park.

One date they were upstaged by a Pelican who wanted to get into the act.

Hummingbird


This hummingbird was very territorial.  It was not willing to share.  Photo taken in central Texas in the hill country.

Willie Wag Tail


The bird was hovering over the water, it didn't seem to be catching anything, maybe he was checking out his refection.

My Kitchen window


Has no view, except a fence.  I try to bring in a bit of the garden to keep me company while I do the dishes.

Autumn Colors

Autumn in the southern hemisphere is March to June.  There are not as many deciduous trees here, seems to be mostly imports.  When you see them it is somewhat unexpected and surprising.  I think "oh it is fall here".  The days are much shorter and a lot cooler.  Next week there will be rain.

Comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4)


Comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) moving quickly down into the horizon.  I had a lot of trouble finding it.  I am glad I did as it has moved out of view in our area now.
