Red wattle birds "splash time"

The pics made me smile when I got to viewing them on the big screen.  It was bath time out in the garden, so I rushed to 'the window' for some action shots.  This was 'his' tub ...

1 - 2 - 3 JUMP!

LOL! Those are great shots, Carole! I like how birds always look ticked off when they're all fluffed up!

TexWisGirl - I loved that one too 1-2-3 go!

Brian: I'm thinking the birds get ticked-off because you've caught them out with a camera when they're not looking their best. They might be thinking you could at least wait till I'm dried off!

Super post Carole. Interesting to note that the lady looks far less dishevelled!

Love your photos of the Wattle bird Carole. He seems to be having to much fun. People like to jump into the water as well. Wonderful photo series.
