This is my pal, the Wattle Bird, or as I call him the clackclack bird..The noise from him!! CLACKCLACK !! Repeat ad nauseum. They are very tolerant of me charging around the yard with my camera.Grin Just a little bit of ornithological info for you.

He is drinking from one of the few remaining, teeny appleblossoms..

Thank you to all for the recent clicks and comments on my last upload of the Cicada. it is much appreciated. Grin

Nice close up Lynnette, they are always too fast for me to capture.
We have to put nets over our fruit trees once the fruit have formed, if we want
any to eat that is… Lovely fiathered friend…..WinkWinkWink
