    The green green grass of home

    This is a red rumped or grass parrot. Normally only seen well out in the paddocks, well away from people, as they quickly flit by. They are very shy and hard to get near. But the other day we had three in the backyard feeding near the back door. Quite exciting. It was the first time in 12 years we have had them visit us. Anyway Mrs Ucci grabbed her camera and took a quick shot through the glass door of the sun room. It was a quick point and shoot on automatic setting before they took off.
    Camera was a Canon SX50, with auto settings of 1/160s; f6.5; ISO 200: focal length 175.5 mm, hand held.

    Great selection of green. One of the reasons I look forward to my trips to Australia is the interesting and varied wildlife. Good grab shot.

    I last spent an evening in Kings Cross in 1973 a week after The Sydney Opera House was opened and yes there was some very colourful wildlife there. Nowadays I am more into dining on Lygon St and getting to bed before midnight.
