Two Missed Milestones

My last post was my 300th post.

I can’t believe it 300 posts and I missed my tri-centenary!

Of course that has made me think about my blog and realize I missed my blogs second birthday back in July. On 8 July my blog was two years old!

At least it wasn’t a wedding anniversary I missed!

That is almost it for tonight, I got home really late because a train broke down on my line. It took me three hours to get home not the usual 90 minutes!

On the weekend I went on another waterfall hunting trip.
On the way there I paused to capture these shots of wild Sulphur-crested Cockatoos (Cacatua galerita).These beautiful parrots are one of most common birds over large chunks of Oz.I have to say they are one of my favorite birds.I think they are simply beautiful.

Those birds seem quite unbothered by your presence. (or you've got a wonderful zoom-in feature on your camera)

Happy blogo-versary.

Happy 300th posting!!! Glad you got home eventually! 3 hours? Good grief! Take care

Wow, the cockatoos are so gorgeous! I love the second picture with the birds winds extended. Amazing.

Congratulations on 300+ posts and 2 years of blogging. I am coming up to my 2 year mark, but am only teetering on the 150th post.

Those birds are absolutely beautiful. Great photos as always.

Hi Susan,
A bit of both.
They let me get fairly close and I do have a 250mm telephoto.

Hi Jennifer,
Thank you
It was the commute from hell.

Hi Linda,
They are gorgeous aren’t they?

Hi Carolyn,
They are lovely. I was happy to catch that piccie.

Hi Rebecca,
Thank you!

Hi John,
I’d take cockatoos over starlings any day!
Show-off :-)

Hi Ann,
Ah well, as time allows!
