Yesterday while having breakfast we were watching a cocky having his.
And then, having finally got all the bulbs that have been delivered in the ground, we had an outing. And went somewhere I love.
Lake Burley Griffin is about half an hours drive from us and there are frequently greedy swans and kangaroos to be seen. So we packed some bread up, took my camera and headed off.
We were mugged. They couldn't get to us or the bread fast enough and were not gentle taking food from fingers. The swans appeared to be the bully boys and were not letting the magpies, crows or moor hens get any food. And when we threw it further away the swans chased after it, honking indignantly. I think at one stage we were surrounded by eight swans.
And then we wandered about 100 yards away to this:
I think that only cats relax more thoroughly than kangaroos. And I am so often grateful to live in the bush capital and have treats like this readily available.
