Birds – well, mostly seagulls. Seagulls sitting, flying. Oddly enough, they were well-behaved today because normally, the raucous scallywags are everywhere, squabbling and messing with the peace of mind of patrons at the tearooms.
So I photographed them sitting in the dappled shade of the plane tree:
Standing as though in a meditative trance or preening on the river’s edge:
A little stranger standing quietly, possibly a fairy tern, and this seagull looking as though he’s going to have a go (he didn’t):
Three short-billed corellas who flew in from an earlier post
and seagulls flying: towards the tables of the tearooms:
over the river:
solitary but never alone: flying with your shadow:
or your reflection:
and this little guy playing at being Narcissus 😀
Now these – they came with the dolphins and left with them too. Some I think are fairy terns, like this one:
but I am not sure of the others. They were too far away. But I loved their shape against sky or water:
And that is the last post of MtLawleyShire’s visit to Matilda Bay.
I hope you enjoyed it. I will go again…..
