Fires out west create an apocalyptic sky over Newtown.

Whilst I was fruitlessly trying to photograph flying dragonflies, this Ibis landed on the railing, quite close to me. I like that you can see such good detail in its head and beak. They always look as old as time.
I was down at Sydney Park last Sunday. I had my camera with me but wasn’t expecting to actually take any photos.
Nonetheless, a young White-Faced Heron was on the scene, so the camera came out.
It was fishing along the margins of one of the ponds, there.
The plastic fencing in the background was put up to keep dogs out of the ponds, because there has been the occasional killing of bird-life there.
The little fellow was finding lots of little meals in the form of small fish. We must have had more rain than I realised because the water was quite a bit higher than I expected.
See it in action. It’s a quick little hunter – the fish didn’t stand a chance.
I haven’t been very photographic of late. Shan’t go into it. Instead, here’s a few pics.
Some lovely clouds…
Neighbouring cat that seemed very worried by my existence…
Little squealing baby Corella in Victoria Park, Broadway.
A few weeks ago I posted about a possum that caught me by surprise. Well, he continues to visit. Using my phone, this time, I took a few more photos and video footage.
Here he is being fed by a friend. It turns out that the little fellow loves almonds.
It’s not the best pic but you can see the claws that clung to my left upper-arm and shoulder.
Well, he really is a charming little chap, and here is some phone video footage. Note my repeated warnings to my friend to be careful, but all was well. See him eating and being basically cute 🙂
