I finally made it to my patchwork group day yesterday. We only had a few members present as the weather has been fairly miserable here of late. As I was driving home, well, almost home, luckily I glanced off to the side, and noticed quite a lot of brolgas grazing in a paddock. I was so excited. I had to stop myself from slamming on the brakes. It took me a while to stop, but I quietly backed up until I could see them better, and hoped they wouldn't take fright. It was quite open, and they often don't take too kindly to be 'observed'.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these beautiful creatures as much I as I did. My photographs are not the best, as I had to take them into the sun. This is by far the largest amount I've seen together. One of them was starting a dance, so I thought I'd better snap quickly and just go.
