I had a pair of red-rumped parrots fly up to me today and spend some time with me. I felt most honored. I just love their grace, colours and temperament 🙂 ❤

Magpie Lark (Grallina cyanoleuca) and wanderer butterfly( Danaus plexippus).

 I was following a wanderer butterfly and I was fortuitous in catching it alight near a magpie lark 😃.

Nesting Rainbow Lorikeets

I was fortunate in capturing this gorgeous photo of nesting couple of Rainbow lorikeets. Aren’t they beautiful! ❤ 🙂

The silence of nature,

soothes the body and soul.

Become as quiet as a lake,

and keep peace with your soul.

I love galahs!

” When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.”  Anthony Douglas Williams.

The galah (Eolophus roseicapilla) also known as the rose-breasted cockatoo.

I heard a familiar  ‘wuaaaaaaawk’, and looked out my bedroom window and watched quietly as a couple of galahs rested in the tall blue gum tree in my front garden. They knew that I was there, and for a while quietly observed me :).

They apparently didn’t mind my intrusion and before long they continued with their antics, hanging upside down, feeding, playing and munching on wood.

The term galah is derived from gilaa, a word found in Yuwaalaraay and neighbouring Aboriginal languages, and colloquially we call them ‘cockies’.

It was utterly captivating and delightful watching them and I felt most privileged and blessed as they had allowed me into their precious lives, and hearts. 🙂 ❤

Wind Dance

Relax and enjoy some solitude with my new beach music and video :).

“The sparkling waters of a summer tide
The song of the breeze as it slips and slides
The beating of wings beneath fluffy skies
When you sit still and listen the music flies”  Kara-Mia Muso

 

Fairy Wren visitors

I had a couple of visitors enjoy some Spring sunshine with me. I just love these wrens! :).

Forest Mountain Stream

For all whom need a little respite, from life’s difficulties and challenges, I’ve created this video and music. Relax in this beautiful forest and listen to the birds and trickling stream, and let your stress dissolve.  Blessings, Bridget 🙂 ❤

Beautiful Flame Robin

“An animal’s eyes, have the power to speak a great language.” Anatole France.

The flame robin (Petroica phoenicea).

I went for a walk in a Eucalyptus forest and met up with a beautiful Flame Robin (often called, robin redbreast) when I was on Bruny Island, Tasmania. He sang, and posed and watched me intensely -communicating with heart- before heading off to munch on some insects. It was a real treat! 🙂

 

Quiet waters

 Quiet waters restore my soul…”  Psalm 23

“And the night shall be filled with music,
      And the cares, that infest the day,
Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs,
      And as silently steal away.” 

 

Eastern Rosella beauty

Superb Fairy Wren (Malurus cyaneus)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been trying to capture the image of one of these beautiful birds for such a long time, almost as long as my memory serves me. They are quite rare and to catch the  fleeting aqua/blue as they fly past is quite extraordinary. It is only the male fairy wrens that have the bright blue aqua plumage, and only when they are breeding. When they are not breeding, they take on the brown colours of the female wren, although parading a blue/purple tail.  Males are usually found with females, as they are socially monogamous. The females brown plumage support a blue tail and they have red feathers around the eyes.

AUSTRALIAN RESEARCHERS HAVE DISCOVERED that crafty fairy-wrens can understand and respond to the danger calls of other birds, suggesting that they have an advanced level of awareness about the world around them. For more information about this, please read this article at Australian Geographic.

Fairy-wrens eavesdrop to avert danger.

p.s. Most images of superb fairy wrens have been enhanced to a more cyan/blue colour, yet their plumage in reality is closer to the photograph that I have taken above. I hope you enjoy his image!  I most certainly do… :).

The Christmas Budgie

Here’s a little Christmas poem and picture I created for children. Please share it! I also wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2015 New Year!

The xmas budgie by Bridget Cameron

The Christmas Budgie

I have a budgie, whose name is Zoom,
He likes to fly around my living room.

Last Christmas Eve when I wasn’t looking,
He found my Christmas stocking.

He bit a hole, right through the sole,
Then, popped his head right out that hole.

Delighted with his Christmas gown,
Zoom bobbed happily up and down.

He looked so proud, full of Christmas cheer,
It even brought me a Christmas tear.

Then, he started whistling Jingle Bells,
Singing wholeheartedly like Peals.

All on Christmas Eve, Upon my Christmas Reeve.

BLACK SWAN LIGHT MAGIC

BLACK SWAN LIGHT MAGIC

Captured this gorgeous image of a black swan, swimming through shimmering star light reflections at St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia. It reminded me of Hans Christian Andersen’s story, The Ugly Duckling; as only when we have gone through our tribulations and dive into our darkness can we find our light and emerge a beautiful swan :).

MUSK LORIKEET

MUSK LORIKEET

Look what I observed outside my bedroom window. It’s a gorgeous musk lorikeet, Glossopsitta concinna ( “elegant”). She brightened my day!
