A few months ago I photographed this kingfisher at Mon Repos beach Queensland, in the afternoon setting sun. Since I was in an open area it was a little more difficult to photograph this shy bird and I mush have walked a few kms.
It’s also a good time to put away my washing, people are curious as they seeing you painting and its not a good look if they almost get hit in the face with your drying underwear. It sends the unprofessional vibe but its also funny has hell.
The bower bird builds its nest out of twigs and collects anything it can find that has shades of blue.
Watching the bushfire concert and deciding to paint a burnt tree stump gave me the idea to name this painting the Bushfire Galah.
This beautiful specimen of a bird was perched on the branch looking rather fluffy having just had a bath in the nearby creek.
Sorry, had to pause for a spider walking across my laptop, blogging outdoors certainly has its drawbacks that’s for sure.
This little bird I found flying around my campsite and hopping from post to post catching little bugs. I’ve now painted a Red Robin from the UK and this time on the other side of the world the Australian Yellow Robin.
