Brolga family
meet in a field of long grass,
swaying in the wind


Note: The Brolga is also known as the Australian Crane and is a wetland bird species of Australia and New Guinea. This Brolga family was in the paddock next door to us – first time I had seen them in the wild.

    1. I didn’t know much about them until Tessa and I went to the Brolga theatre in Maryborough for the ballet and they have statues our the front of some Brolgas (didn’t know they were so big either).
