As most of you may not know, I work in real estate as a Leasing Manager for a prominant SA Real Estate company, and my patch of turf is the Adelaide CBD and inner city suburbs.

In my day to day life, I dont often get to experience nature like a lot of my lucky bloggy friends because of this.  I only dream of a country lifestyle filled with dogs, cats and chooks, and am filled with awe at the photos some of my friends post of moose and bears - amazing.

But yesterday standing at an open inspection at the inner suburb of Walkerville, I had my own colourful brush with nature.  Outside of the property was a bottle brush tree in full bloom as it is spring, and there was a lot of commotion coming from this particular tree.

On closer inspection I spotted a good half dozen colourful Rosellas having their evening meal.  Lucky I had my camera on me for a few snaps and here they are:


  1. Beautiful photos Sue. I love the way rosellas hang upside down to get to the bottlebrushes.

  2. Oh how wonderful to see them again. I love the bright colours of our rossies and lorrikets. I have started feeding mine again so I hope they remember me!
    Nice treasure story Sue. Cheers

  3. I love the rainbow lorrikeets. Fantastic photos Sue. They are like aerial performers and I could watch them for hours.

  4. How wonderful. I love rosellas too. Thank you so much for sharing them as part of Tuesday Treasures.

  5. Totally amazing - that is so cool!

  6. WOW. Brilliant photos. you have the most amazing animals in Australia. those birds are fantastic. Love their bright colors.
