Out of MtLawleyShire and back for Sunset: river, trees and birds

These are from a trop to Matilda Bay and back again, a quick walk around the streets, then a snatch of sunset and the moon.

First – birds: a quickly snatched shot of a wattled honeyeater in the fully leafed flame tree – it’s not on the right setting, but was this bird going to wait?  Uh uh.

The others are the ubiquitious seagull, but such clear shots against the river, including wind-ruffled feathers.  And they are attractive birds – in appearance.  Habits? Not so much – & getting aggressive too.

Left from a magpie lark, I think.

Back in MtLawleyShire – this beautiful tree is in someone’s backyard.  Envy 🙂

I don’t normally like these, but the way the red caught the sun was stunning.  I almost caught it.

Dunno what this is either, but it’s pretty.

ah – sunset – snatches of golden sky

from a  distance, the colour is small and slight in a sea of infinite blue

quiet descent into night

closer the colour is more vibrant, deeper

& it really is the middle of suburbia – inner city suburbia at that.  This one looks like it’s out in the middle of nowhere.  Well, I suppose it is Perth…
