Pink and grey hold sway

One of the lovely sights of summer is that of a flock of Galahs, wheeling low over the stubble. The pink and grey hues against the remnants of harvested crops are magic in the late afternoon sun.

  1. Beautiful birds with a lovely tinkling call . Always hear them before I see them.

  2. Astonishingly beautiful Geoff. They are my favourite birds – such wonderful flyers.

  3. Great compositions. Be good to see a few more Galahs down here.

  4. So beautiful, especially against the golden grass and dark grey-blue sky. They are my partner’s favourite parrots – he reckons they look like grumpy old men sauntering along…
