|White-headed Pigeons |
on Small-leaved Privet
These Pigeons apparently like to get in early.
|Female (grey head) facing camera.|
Others with pure white heads are males,
But they are not co-operating.
|Female flying off (black wings visible)|
Male bird's head now clearly visible.
Pure white head.
And now for something completely different.
This is the Ladies Tresses Orchid, Spiranthes australis.
My father, who was the only male child in his family, but who had 5 sisters, was very experienced in doing "French Plaits" for his sisters. These plants remind me of his stories of plaiting his sisters' hair.
