Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
I usually run with a theme. We asked our recent visitor what she wanted to do while she was here. 'I want a kangaroo fix'.
Not a problem. That spot by the lake is one of our favourite short outings. So off we went.
Not a kangaroo to be seen. Our visitor is also bird obsessed so we revelled in the red-rumped parrots (aka bum birds). The female has much more muted colouring than the male, but is still a pretty bird.
The Eastern rosella was also a welcome sight.
And the fuzzy headed Australian wood duck.
Still no kangaroos - so we kept wandering.
Wandering, and thoroughly enjoying ourselves.
And then we turned a corner - very happy kangaroos lounging about on the golf course which adjoins the park by the lake.
We have never, ever been to Weston Park without feeling better for the visit.
A few days later on the way to the airport we made a small detour and went back to the lake.
I liked seeing the tip of its pink tongue (and in the next shot it might have been poking its tongue out at me).
Plenty of kangaroos, enjoying the dappled light under a small grove of oak trees. They camouflague themselves well - even under exotic (to them) trees. It did feel good to send her home with a kangaroo fix.
