Country Roads .......



 Roaming around sunburnt country roads
 in the Lower Flinders ranges of South Australia
reminded me of the poem "My Country"


" I love a sunburnt country
a land of sweeping plains
of ragged mountain ranges
  of droughts and flooding rains"
                                                                              Dorothea Mackellar  1904

Sitting on the Fence .......





A lovely rainbow Bee-Eater looking  for a tasty morsel for his Breakfast
This is the first time I've seen one of these sweet little birds.

They are just returning to the Southern states of Australia
following their Winter migration
to warmer climes
