In the last 9 months I’ve really enjoyed 6 bushwalks through the beautiful Noosa National Park, on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. I love the variety of birds, plants, ecosystems and costal scenes which can be enjoyed in walks of just the right duration. Here are some pics:
I love the intense red in the seed pod of this Wallum Banksia (Banksia aemula) or Red Honeysuckle (Banksia serrata)
A Lewin’s Honeyeater (Meliphaga lewinii) enjoying morning tea from a grass tree flower [Xanthorrhoea (Family: Xanthorrhoeaceae)]
The cute, flighty Rufous Fantail (Rhipidura rufifrons)
Look twice at this one – see if you can find reference to the idea of “Yippee!! or an Olympic Diver… 🙂
Laughing Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae)
The large wingspan of a tern
A beautiful cute Fairy Wren
Heathy Parrot Pea (Dillwynia retorta)
White Cheeked Honeyeater (Phylidonyris nigra)
Beautiful Sunshine Beach at the south eastern edge of the park
Devil’s Rice (Conospermum taxifolium)
The brilliant Variegated Fairy Wren (Malurus lamberti)
Wedding Bush (Ricinocarpos pinifolius)
Perhaps a Native Iris, either Patersonia glabrata or Patersonia fragilis
To finish – a bird which perhaps thinks it’s a member of a choir of heavenly angels – a Brown Honeyeater (Lichmera indistincta)
Here’s my Smugmug gallery of photos from 6 visits to Noosa National Park, from November 2012 to July 2013.
Here’s an second gallery of additional pics taken on my very humble pocket camera covering 6 visits to Noosa National Park, from November 2012 to July 2013.
Thanks so much for looking.
