Out of MtLawleyShire: Matilda Bay in the sun

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:

I love this tree:

But this was as close as I could get to show its soaring height

because – can you see the bees?

    When in the game reserve the smaller birds will join one at the table.. the weavers etc.. all hoping for a snack.. would hate to share my breakfast with a raven.. he might eat faster than I.. love the trees ..not the bees… but then I hear no yelps of pain so they did not get a hold of you…

    • no, the bees didn’t get me. I like bees but I’m allergic – too many stings when I was a kid. And the ravens? They are far less aggressive than the seagulls!
