It’s amazing how often a person’s spirits can be lifted when in the company of an animal, whether it be your beloved dog or cat, or another furry or feathered (or perhaps scaly?) friend. I am blessed to live in an area where we have many wildlife visiting or travelling through, and a day never passes when I am not lifted by these encounters. Just seeing a beautiful colourful parrot sitting in a gum tree, hearing a melodious birdsong, watching a water dragon sunning itself on a rock, or even seeing the most adorable possum joey riding on their mother’s back, taking in their new world with wide eyes, never ceases to make me feel good about being alive and appreciating the wonders of this world.
Please enjoy this slideshow of a small selection of some of my favourite willdife photos I’ve taken during 2016 as a celebration of my second year of this blog. I hope they make you smile and warm your heart.
