A bright – very bright – sunny day at Matilda bay, having lunch with a dear friend. The wind off the river was deliciously cool without being cold. However, the air was a little less than pleasantly fragrant – storms had brought up some detritus, which the gulls didn’t mind:
but not much seems to perturb the gulls.
A few more pleasant photos of them – they photo-bombed (quite artistically) my attempt to show the beginnings of Autumn in the trees growing along the curving edge of the river:
No honeyeaters in evidence yet, but the flame tree is a long way off flowering – it must first lose its leaves before winter starts – and there only the beginnings of signs that the former might happen and the latter is still just a hope, but the leaves against the sky do look rather lovely:
Along with the gulls, who created their normal havoc at the tables, there were the more composed ravens:
then, of course – there are the trees:
cape lilac (with raven)
embracing the sun:
Fraternal twins & a trio:
White grace in the sunlight
this is just lovely:
I love this tree:
But this was as close as I could get to show its soaring height
because – can you see the bees?
