Yellow Rumped Thornbill

Last week this little guy visited and enchanted me with its beautiful song.
Its a Yellow Rumped Thornbill who was fossicking around for some lunch ; )

Yesterday we had a big frost. I posted some pictures on my other blog.
As I walked around the frozen ponds checking if the fish were Ok and looking for the best angle, I looked down to see these amazing ice formations! I couldn't see them unless I stood directly over them, hence the reflection of me and my camera in these images.
These formations really make me catch my breath and think about how amazing mother nature is! I'm thankful she showed me something so beautiful and intricate on a cold and frosty morning!

The winter sun shines through the peeling bark of this Crab apple giving it a beautiful orange glow.

Like a Glady

But thinner and out of season. Most of the others that had taller flower heads look wiled and dead now - the flower heads in bud that is. I'm hoping this one opens :)

Subtly Stunning

I noticed these interesting not quite flowers on a small tree recently.

Then I looked up to see what they become.

Olives for Kings

The first King parrots to visit us for a short stay. There was a group of three with one quite clearly a male who departed shortly after I arrived. The male is bright red right up his chest and into a hood. I got a few good pics of the other two. One appears to perhaps be immature.

There is still an odd Apricot seed on the tree

A lovely Fluffy feather blowing in the breeze.

I suspect the middle pic and perhaps also the bottom one are daffodils the top one I'm not at all sure about, thinner more ribbon like foliage. There are quite a lot of scenes like this in the garden ATM.

This is what the path by the mandarin tree looked like on Wednesday after a windy Monday.

Most of the remaining leaves on the maple now look Dead, no longer showing their bright glossy Autumn shine but instead a texture and shape that is unfamiliar but none the less beautiful in its own right.

Winter bought some Visitors

Some Yellow Faced Honeyeaters stopped in for a bath this morning there were a few Silver eyes amongst them too a smallish flock. 
Yesterdays visiting flock was a motley crew consisting of Silver Eyes, a Fairy Wren an Adult Eastern Spinebill, Brown Headed Honeyeaters and what I believe to be a pair of  larger White Plumed Honeyeaters.
