So. What do I have to show for 2014?
A refurbished house
A brief whip around the Whitsundays (fodder for the latest book – still in progress)
The possums and the lorikeets are in dispute about ownership of the big nest box in the palm tree. On the basis of ‘needs must’ one of the other nest boxes is now called home.
One of the pairs of lorikeets setting up house includes the little guy with only one eye. He’s been around since the event that cost him his eye. He recuperated here because it’s safe and the food is easily available. Hopefully this pair will raise a chick.
We have a resident white ibis with a handicap – a 5mm section has broken off his lower beak, making it hard for him to compete for food with others of his kind.
1 book (Kuralon Rescue) and 1 Novella (A Matter of Trust)
And, of course, a bunch of pictures.
To say goodbye to 2014, here’s a month-by-month gallery of photos. They were all taken either at sunrise or sunset. That’s why they’re a year of bookends. Enjoy. Oh, by the way, they’re all copyright.
Love all your pics, Greta. Hope you get more great ones in 2015.
Thanks, Dale. And best wishes to you, too
Seems like you’ve had an interesting year! I hope 2015 is even better. Love the lorikeets! Now if those giant poisonous spiders would just move off the continent…
Ah, Julia. If the spiders moved out, we’d just have more snakes 🙂

Wow, what wonderful scenic photos!
Very jealous of your wildlife. We just have blackbirds and rabbits contending for domination of the garden here.
I love the wildlife, too. There’s always something to brighten the day
