The Honey in the High Hollow – Bird Photos

I went to watch my son play rugby with my mother this morning and this pair of young rainbow lorikeets got my attention. The game had not started yet, but I could hear them quietly chatting in the trees while honey-hunting. The pair was after the honey more than 20 feet high in the  hollow  of this large gum tree at University of Queensland rugby field, Brisbane.

      1. I’m well, thanks, Joycelin. 🙂 We’ve just got back from a holiday in Cornwall, which was a lovely break. My nano-novel is still a bit of a mess, unfortunately, though it is coming along. I don’t write in a sequential narrative – I jump around wherever inspiration takes me – so I have lots of scenes that still need to be tied together!
        How are your writing and other artistic pursuits going?

      2. Oh the break sounds lovely. I think if you write like that – it will draw the best out of you. I write the same way – so I am jumping all over the memoir, but while my mother is here, she has added a lot to her parts of the story and given me more material for my own story. My two children’s books are almost done – just need to complete the artwork and have it laid out. That story I started for Nano still has potential, but I have not had time to work on it. So much to do. 🙂 Nice to talk to you again Lou.
