  1. Lovely post Ashley. Especially love the photo of the chick, very cute. Hope you don’t have to wait much longer to hear from management about your employment situation. Have a great week!

    • Thanks Sue, I finally found out yesterday that my immediate managers have been vying for me to stay part time. I have been given another month as they have not found anyone suitable to fill my position, and when they do I will need to stay to train them. So God is good and has allowed me to stay on on my terms which the chief scientist says is good for both parties. This should bring me to the end of the year which is what I wanted, and I will decide what next after that. Enjoy the Spring sunshine, it is something the Tassie people really appreciate down there.:-)

  2. I very much enjoyed seeing the maturity stages of this beautiful bird, and your photos were awesome, Ashley! Of course, the little ones are so darn cute! I can understand your love of these birds, they do provide glorious reflections. And those legs! What I wouldn’t do to have those long, gorgeous legs!! 😉 Continued prayers for you and your wife as you await your future direction.

    • Thanks Donna, Yes those legs ha, ha! Thanks Donna, your prayers are appreciated, and yesterday God answered and I was asked to stay another month possibly more as they have not found anyone suitable for my position as yet, and I am still training new workers. I am so blown away with God’s favour shown me through the love and regard of my fellow workers who want me to stay. They are finding ways to extend my employment on my terms. I am so thankful to God for his favour and beautiful heart toward me. Have a wonderful week enjoying your beautiful fall colours Donna from your photo studio overlooking the water.:-)

  3. Super post. They are such a likeable bird. And they give the most artistic look in reflections with those amazing long legs.
    Plenty of excellent detail about their life and the young growing up. Little bundles of fluff that look like they could be blown away at a moment.
    All good.

    • Thanks so much David, they are so cute as chicks, and like our kiddies doesn’t take long before they are asking for the keys to the car so they can fly on their own. I seem to see these birds in so many places at the moment. Saw some in Mudgee in Pucca Bucca Wetlands on the Cudgegong River today before returning from the Wine and Food Festival weekend. Enjoy your week.
