Not a big photo day today with too much happening at work - except for the Satin Bowerbird.

I’ve seen a pair of these birds around, off and on, for a while now. One got close enough to photograph this morning (as it stole not-ripe strawberries from the herb garden). The photograph is an almost-100% crop from a larger image so the end result is a bit grainy. The bird is a Satin Bowerbird; probably an immature male, or perhaps a female.
This moving object caught my eye this evening with the bright jet trail being illuminated by the low sun.
I’ve passed this park countless times - but I’ve never, ever noticed that this path had a name.
With my looking forward to winding down from a hectic week, these sheep grazing in the setting sun seemed quite tranquil.
