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.

Born in England in 1957 my 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. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.

  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.
