In the roo-nforest

With all the rain and swaying timber, the tree roos have been maintaining a low profile. But one broke cover to cross the garden the easy way. (Note the very loose definition of garden.)

Those Tree Roos possibly wonder why you changed 'their' garden into an obstacle course!

I would not be at all surprised to wake up one day to a picket line of tree roos protesting against poor conditions.

At some point, I will have to clean up the debris from Cyclone Tasha.

Wish I had a roo-ful backyard!

Snail said...

Tony, I do feel really privileged to have these animals so close to the house.

Have so enjoyed discovering your blog (while googling for "galah wings" for an art commission!)

I can't help but feel jealous. My exotic backyard sighting would be a rat, squirrel or rabbit. Maybe a couple of interesting birds will show during the spring migration.
Your photos are wonderful as always. Living vicariously through you--it helps my winter cabin fever.

Snail said...

Neomyrtus, I haven't seen the white-tailed rats around for a while. I'm sure they're about, but are keeping a low profile in all the wind and rain.

Snail said...

Laura, they either have that expression or one of mild exasperation at the paparazzi.

Snail said...

Jilly, welcome to Snail's Eye View. I hope you found something suitable. I don't think I've got many galah pics, unfortunately.

Sarala, I've got Wet Season cabin fever, so your pics of Chicago help me too!
