Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Feathers


I had forgotten the topic of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge was feathers this week when on Saturday morning a pair of green Rosellas paid a visit to my garden. They stayed quite a while so I was able to go and get my 100-300 zoom lens. I shot the photos through the window so as not to scare them away and then cropped the results.

Here they are with some other feathery visitors to my garden. The green plumage of the Rosellas blended into the colour of my lawn while the little sparrow was very hard to pick as he blended in to the colours of the rocks and bark chips.

Taswegian1957

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.

  1. Beautiful feathers! You have such brightly colored birds there. We have blue birds and yellow birds and birds with some red but none that have all those colors together.
