Pink sky in the morning, a farmer's warning
Stopping off to snap a few 28ers yesterday, I strayed upon this little number, the first baby galah of the parrot season. Grazing happily he was, alongside his equally ravenous mother.
Proving, of course, that the seed never falls far from the tree.
Galahs are more frequently called 'pink and greys' in Western Australia. The poor things were probably so named because a pink and grey mist is all a farmer sees when he shoots 'em with his 22.
It's a poetic, romantic, place, this Western Australia.
