Today's ABC Open photos

At My Door

'Our' Owlett Nightjar (Ageothles Crisoptus) has been living in his bird box for years.  Perhaps it is not he, but a lady friend. He or she barks a little bark at night when out and about , and occasionally during the day when it pops out of a man made nest to see the world. There one minute, gone the next.  Published 08 Apr 2016.  Fryerstown VIC 3451

Grey Shrike Thrush - my spiritual friend

She perched so delicately on the cactus, welcoming the morning, the smell of fresh brewed coffee and the company of my spiritual friend.

Mustering and Branding
By GirlfromtheBush ·  · From Snapped: Summer

"The Camp" muster for this round normally lasts 5 days. Four days to muster the creeks, one of which is mustered twice and two creeks are done on the second last day by sending a couple of people up one creek and a couple down the other.
This photo was taken from the back of my horse on the second last day. We always steady the cows and calves out from the holding paddock to ensure the calves are mothered and to maintain herd manageability.
This year long hot days were endured, at a guess every day was at least 40C, with the day we mustered Serocold Creek being well in the mid forties. We are lucky that mustering Serocold only takes half a day giving the cattle (plus humans and dogs) plenty of time to cool down.
Every muster is different, and every year I learn my way better, and every year I appreciate just how lucky I am to have this experience a little bit more.
