Floriade - the wildlife

We saw lots of bird life while we were at Floriade, I even noted a little blue wren fluttering about near a painter set up with his easel but it was too quick for me to snap.
This little Magpie came near to us at lunch time, I told him we didn't have any food for him and he left us alone but I did leave plenty of crumbs for him when I shook out the picnic rug.

The swans just glided back and forth as if showing off their babies.




Some sort of Water fowl sitting up out of the water in the reeds, keeping a close eye on what was happening down below.


... and this is my children stroking a Boa Constrictor.
Mr 3's verdict ... it felt 'spotty'

  7. Beautiful wildlife photos, Tammy! We have yellow-billed magpies here. I love the picture of the swan with the babies ... I wonder what they are called. (Swanlings? :o) Your boy is brave to pet that spotty snake!
