Looked out my window today to find one of our resident turtle-doves hanging out in the bath:

 

Soaking in the bathtub ... with a water lettuce.

One last one for the birders...

I wasn't going to post this one, because the picture isn't nearly as good, but after spending almost 3 hours trying to identify this little bird, the results have left me a little bit giddy, and as this is never going to happen to me again, I thought I'd share.

 

 

This is the female Splendid Fairy-wren.  Splendid Fairy-wrens are pretty common in parts of central Australia, but not Melbourne.  Melbourne is listed as being outside their habitat by several hundred kilometres (which is why it took me 3 hours to confirm it - I was certain I was wrong), but the orange ring around her eyes makes it a solid ID.  Seems we found someone a bit special - or, at least, uncommon in our area.

Finally!

My husband and I occasionally hit the walking trails around Melbourne and I drive him and myself crazy trying to snap pictures of the wildlife.  Taking photos of wildlife when you're near-sighted is an exercise in frustration: I need my glasses to see the birds in the trees, but can't wear them while I'm looking at the camera.  The end result being I always miss the adorable, tiny birds that are flitting about, holding still only long enough for me to slide my glasses down my nose and aim the camera; before I can focus, poof!

 

Until today.

 

This is the photographic equivalent of monkeys typing Shakespeare.  I haven't identified the little guy yet, but I had to share.  Isn't he stinking cute?
