Cooler ....

While the southers parts of Australia are still swealtering in a heatwave with temperatures in the mid 40's C, here the weather is cooler. I am actually sitting here typing in the study without airconditioning. I love it!

We had 3 birds playing in the palm looking for insects this morning. They were blue-faced honeyeaters but the blue is green in immature birds. I was lucky to get a few photos before our wonderful dogs scared them away.

Click on photo for larger picture. The bird is beautiful.

And here is the flower from the bud of the day before.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Beautiful bird and blossom. Not much heat here, but not much snow here either this winter in N Ireland.
