The male white-winged trillers were also present near our tiny dam and although the photos are unclear it was good to take to confirm their id's. I had seen them the weekend before but wasn't sure on their identification. Thanks John for the id of the female pic I took last weekend!
The baby galah's are a noisy addition to the trees near the house! There are two with this one adult pair that always live close by - what clumsy baby's they are, they are so funny to watch.
A few butterflies were present, including a Blue Tiger Butterfly - which I didn't manage a photo of, the common Caper Whites, Meadow Argus were all hanging around the grasses where the sprinkler had been going. The photo of the meadow argus almost looks like he is smiling I think!
There has been a massive buck Eastern Grey Kangaroo around over the weekend that has come very close to the house also - we don't often have the huge ones come so near. When he stands up straight he is quite a sight in the distance!
Although rain was predicted, the weekend was hot and very dry but we did get a small sprinkle of rain late Sunday afternoon. J.G.

|Caper White Butterfly|
|Unknown small insect either a bee or a fly about 1cm long hovering over the grass - it always stays about 15mm from the ground.|
|Meadow Argus Butterfly - smiling it seems!|
|Big Buck Eastern Grey Kangaroo grazing on the lawn in the house grounds.|
|The ever elusive Red-Backed Fairy Wrens decided to come out and display themselves along with the Superb Blue Fairy Wrens all in the same area.|
|These little wrens are so hard to capture - darting in and out of the grasses!|
|While this is not clear - I liked it anyway with the Two Male Red-Backed Fairy Wren's in flight - I seldom see two males together.|
