  2. While you have been doing the 'fun stuff', showing the world the wonderful places and things that we saw on our recent South Australia trip, I have been doing the 'foot-slog stuff' of researching for another of our Adventures for next year. You get to reap the enjoyment of my labours.......... but I get the double enjoyment of participating and also reliving the trip through your blog, so I guess we can call it even. Ann J

  4. Diane, looks like you saw some pretty birds on your trip. The top two are really colorful. Are they the lorikeets?

  5. Great shots. Interesting to see the ones in that area.
    I agree with eileeninmd - the top two are so colourful. What a treat to come upon them. Well done!

  6. Eileen, I'm sorry that I am not sure what kind of parrots they. They are different from the Lorikeets that we have here in Queensland.

  11. Beautiful and colourful, diane. I loved the bird in the middle right block with the amazing shadow. Excellent photo. Hope you're enjoying your weekend. Greetings, Jo

  12. I think the top two shots of the parrots taken by Diane on her SA trip are either: a variety of the turquoise parrot or a variety of the mallee parrot. More than likely as the country is "mallee vegetation", then the latter breed.
    The bottom two are left, a corella and right are the common galahs, which are great to have as pets.
    Once you teach them to talk, they NEVER shut up!!! ha ha.

  13. You did better than me with your bird pics ... that little grass parrot in the Salvation Jane is a beauty. Did you see any eagles? ... I did but can never get a good shot. I love them they are so majestic.

  14. I did see eagles but from the bus and couldn't get a shot. My bird photography eaves a lot to be desired. Something I must work on. I was disappointed that we didn't see more birds at the lake. We saw flocks of them over the Cooper Ck from the plane but impossible to shoot.
