Such a majestic sight, seeing these Brolga’s fly in the sky.. seen these in the northern part of Queensland back in 2010. Converted this to black & white for the special look

Crane bird

Long ago i had the wish to see
The majesty of this bird so free
Famous for its courtship dance
So when I actually had a glance
I couldn’t believe my very eyes
Almost too big was the surprise
As the sight becomes a regularity
I realize that it’s a actually a rarity
Endangered in our low countryside
Yet the cranes don’t choose to hide
Today again the two stand fine
Oh so very close to the railway line
Do other people care to take a look
Standing there, straight from a fairytale book
Probably best if you remain a hidden treasure
Hidden in plain sight, such a funny pleasure

View over the Vragenderveen

As promised some more pictures in a gallery of the Vragenderveen with the watchtower. Really amazing view over the bog, which covers quite a large area. They even got Crane birds in here, wonderful to see them. Don’t know whether i’ll be able to catch them on camera though as they’re very much secluded
