After a busy week I decided to "duck" outdoors with my trusty Nikon, notwithstanding forecast rain. Apart from an initial deluge (thankfully before I left the car!) and a subsequent brief shower, it was a delightful and invigorating couple of hours spent in Morialta Falls park in the Adelaide Hills.
Won't you join me on the journey?
Usually a bird lover, I have to say this particular species is not in the least endearing to me - the Noisy Miner is an aggressive creature not frightened of attacking birds much larger than itself and invading territories occupied by the smaller, sweeter birds
Morialta Falls - not spectacular, but at least the water is flowing !

Having just experienced the second driest June on record, it was wonderful to see the waters flowing in the creek
Hope you enjoyed this glimpse of Adelaide's north-east and wishing you all a safe and happy weekend.
Adelaide's winter began on 1 June and it was the coldest start to the season in 70 years!
(overnight 2.9C and daytime max of 15C)
Today it climbed to 17C and was an absolutely splendiferous day -
slightly crisp air with blue skies, but the sun still made its presence felt.
Again, it was too good a day to spend indoors (notwithstanding I have a couple of computing and photographic deadlines looming), so mid afternoon I visited a nearby park for a walk with my Nikon and was duly rewarded!
What a treat to catch this sweet Jenny Wren - they are usually so flighty I find it hard to spot one, never mind get a shot in focus!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend as I link up with James'
