It was a strange and quite beautiful experience. I had not realised that the mother had followed me to the neighbours house. When I saw her, I grabbed my camera and just watched and took photos. A wattle bird appeared and she chased him away with great venom, but somehow she let me extremely close to her.
But wait there is more..upon my return the next day..
