In case you missed it, I live in Australia. It is winter, which in the dry tropics means it is perfect, as long as you don't have to get up early and have a weepy, snotty ride to work. It was 10 degrees this morning, and as there is no central heating in my house it was very hard to get out from under the doona and get moving. This afternoon I had to go to the building next door, which is attached to my building by a walkway.
There was a cheeky fellow on the rail both ways, so I grabbed the phone and came back for a photo.
A perfect shot for the dry tropics, with livistonia palms and poplar gums in the background. It is nice to get up close to wildlife, but a bit scary when you are confronted with those shiny eyes and that massive beak!
