Crested Pigeon, Spotted Dove, and a sprinkling of local botanicals
...it was just before 9.30 am as I wandered about the resort perimeter at Alice Springs N.T., in search of birds. Well, there was nothing to find it seemed, that morning. Perhaps it was just a litle too cold, even though the sun was shining. It would take a while before the 1 degree celcius start, gained any momentum.
Almost ready to give up, when I caught sight of this Crested Pigeon landing well ahead, so a great opportunity to aim my camera ..
growing nearby, Eremophila
about to be, gum-blossoms
like these, a little tired...
that end up looking like these .. quaint gum-nuts
still here preening
...looking like, a Spotted Dove up there on the power line
