Then we took a plane – Qantas carrying a cockatiel!

Quantas pretty good service this time

At the end of the flight when we picked him up in Adelaide fresh out of the Qantas hold he was traumatised the. PTSD last about weeks. I don’t know if this applies to all birds but Cockatiels are very sensitive little creatures. In the mornings all birds tend to be, well er noisy! In Lucio’s case this manifests itself as chattiness, he will speak all the three word sentences he has ever learned but after the plane trip and a few days later the 8 hours inside the car in the hot hold of the spirit of Tasmania he was stressed very stressed all his words came out jumbled up and even the sylables were in some cases back to front. All very odd. There is a Phd thesis in there somewhere…

A mushroom on the forest floor at night by iPhone…

Mushroom in the Jarrah Forest

iPhone 5s.  After five years my first iPhone a 3g had just about given up the ghost so now it sits on my kitchen counter as a very hi tech egg timer! This photo is one of the first half dozen and the first one with flash – what a novelty. I’m quite impressed by the new iPhones capabilities but I don’t think it will replace any cameras any time soon just too much DOF for my taste. However that said I have been itching to try some of the current crop of photo manipulator apps on the phone itsself that the 3g just could not handle. They are great things to play with on public transport which I had to use a few days ago and I was not alone an elderly lady was sat opposite from me completing a crossword on her iPad which she was obviously totally wrapped with.
