A couple of Lorikeets
Today I was walking the animals in the beautiful suburb of Ingelside and I saw some amazing bits and pieces of nature.. I saw a few very amazing birds which left me awestruck. A dog and I were just sitting near a pond in a bit of a clear area near some type of paddock, field or grass land. We were sitting in the sun when a most amazing spectacle unfolded before us... From out of nowhere came a sudden flash of blue almost like lightening landing on a branch just across the pond less then 15 to 20 feet away. Of all birds it was a Blue Kingfisher snatching up a Dragonfly in mid flight then landing on a branch. It did a usual thing of what they do to kill prey by hitting it against the branch until there is no movement. I was so surprised to see how small this beautiful little creature was and how agile and quick it was.. I didn't have my mobile phone on me as I couldn't quickly take a picture. As I was looking it up on the internet I found it could be found by several different names which I'm also going to includes links to. Here's a link to a picture of what it looks like...
