Did you know that we have penguins down here in South Oz? Yep, there's a colony of little blue penguins down on Granite Island. You can take a horsedrawn tram across the 632 metre long causeway connecting the island to the mainland.
That reminds me, I really need to write up a post about them thar big ole Shire horses that pull the trams. I gots pictures, even.
But not today. Why? Cus I'm lazy and don't feel like trawling through all the pics and writing up an article. Besides, I'm making a feast tonight so I don't have much time.
If y'alls int'ressed, the feast is two sushi platters, steamed mussels marinated in white wine, grill basa (it's a fish), roasted herbed spuds, and some coleslaw (had to do something with the cabbage before it went bung).
Today will be about the freezing cold temps we get down here in South Oz that supports them little penguins. There'll also be some parrot pictures; some horrid, some not so horrid.
It's late afternoon and the shade temp is a whole whopping 75 F. Temp in the sun barely hit's the mid 90's. I had to put on a flannel shirt to hike up to the shops earlier. Blech. Needed a wetsuit for the pool cus it's not even 80 F in the water.
I've turned into SUCH a WUSS!!!! Did you know I used to take the trash out at -30 F barefoot?
Anyways, I'll give you some purdy birdy pics for reading all that above junk.
First, one that shows my absolute and utter lack of getting the darned cockatoos to land where I tell them:
And here's one showing my inability to get the entire subject in the shot:
This next one coulda been so good...
And even when you get it all lined up, some little green twit lands in front of the subject:
At least the blurred wings look kinda cool:
