I spotted this colourful little red-rumped parrot munching out on seeds and grasses
while on a photo shoot in and around the Mawson Lakes area.
The male is easily identified by his bright red-rump feathers
although they are quite common in my area I have never lost the wonder of finding a cluster of these little gems feeding under shrubbery or seeing their little heads bobbing up and down whilst feeding amongst green grassy pastures *********
Rome is such a warm busy metropolis - with it's wonderful wealth of history, architecture
and a multitude of spaghetti coloured buildings If you keep your eyes peeled - you can find the sweetest little treasures like this aged bell tarnished by time and the elements but all the more lovelier for it.
