This female butcherbird has taken to waiting patiently for prey, cleverly hiding herself behind the she-oak needles. With the summer cicadas everywhere she has been feasting on them devouring them in a few moments.

Margo is the companion of an elderly shitz-tu who likes daily walks and homemade food. In a moment of madness or lucidity (depending on her mood) she fled the corporate world to watch clouds, touch foliage and smell the earth and adopted a somewhat nomadic lifestyle on the east coast of Australia, interspersed with the odd trip overseas. An elusive figure she can sometimes be seen poking about amoung the Aboriginal shell middens on the beaches that surround the sea-side village where she lives, or striding past the kangaroos sunbaking on the grassy headlands. When the weather is dry she is known to retreat to the quiet hum of the Australian bush where she wanders contentedly, accompanied by birdsong and scuttling skinks. http://margosnotebook.wordpress.com
