After another colourful and noisy feeding in the trees nearby, I noticed these cockatoos on a lamp post. With their bellies full, they needed to digest their meal and rekindle their affection to each other. I watched this ongoing for quiet some time and going through the photos once more, this is how I interpreted their behavior, with a dash of my wicked humor.
The Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo king and his queen were high up on a lamp post to overlook their kingdom and on to their followers.
His left hand adviser joined them with a ceremonial bow to his majesties,
before he excused himself at a place not far off.
The king accepted his behavior by raising his crown feathers.
And so the three were sitting happily together on the lamp post.
The king was in a happy mode and felt a bit cheeky. He started gently to caress his queen which she gladly accepted.
It looked like he was whispering some frisky words in to her ear, which made her blush.
Awww, they both look so happy.
He has a huge grin on his face.
Holding feathers, hail the king and his queen.
Just like in any kingdom, there was trouble ahead. Challengers came swooping by, interrupting this harmonious gathering.
The king didn’t want to leave his queen and had a good think about his actions.
His adviser whispered words of actions and his queen agreed.
Harmonious a few minutes ago, a fight broke out. The king didn’t want to leave but his queen wanted a real king.
She literally pushed him off the lamppost. And so he flew off with intent.
The queen stayed behind and called in her offspring.
Both weren’t sure on how this would end.
The young one was obviously scared and was looking for comfort.
The queen was hesitant at starters, but eventually gave in.
Share the compassion.
The king meanwhile tracked down the evil black witch and confronted her on the lamp. This was too close for comfort for his queen as he vigorously defended her.
It was a beak to beak battle and could have ended either way. Was the black witch able to cast her spell over the king? Like a real hero, he knew what was at stake and never gave up.
The black witch eventually admitted to defeat and flew off.
The king returned to his royal family and all lived happily ever after.
At least for today.
