May 20 - 26, 2012: Issue 59
A mixed bag of all encountered this week with a 'golden theme' for some reason; wattles, birds, lights where music was played, dusky dawns and clear days; must be a late Autumn colour ! Also a number of birds doing wing flapping this week; a display associated with establishing territory... my creek, my balcony, my pet human being...
