Before we went on our walk through the Dandenon Ranges, we had to give in to a touristic temptation - feeding the local cockatoos at the Grant Picnic Ground. I love the native birds of Australia and my hearts jumps everytime I see one of the colourful and chirpy birds around.
For 4 AUD I bought a tray filled with yummy seeds for the birds and off we went! It didnt take long and we had cockatoos sitting on the tray, on our arms and shoulders, taking off and landing as they pleased. Ready, set, photoshoot.
Standing outside the feeding area, observing the fellow tourist and their attempts to get rid of sneaky birds on the bodyparts was hilarious!! Full trays were dropped with a big BANG regularly, causing everybody to almost die of a heartattack - including the birds!
Oh, and just on a sidenote, I was trying to snap a picture of a cockatoo flying (you know what I mean: flying bird: sharp, backgorund: blurred) - not really successfully but I do love the last shot with all its blurryness!
Have a great week
