Usually we think of animals in pairs. Mates. Otherwise we think of them in packs. Family groups. Trios of animals seems odd but these photos show that it happens.

Yes, it is a trio. A trio of Aunts. Amazing to think that my Mum at 87 (in the middle front) still has three aunts living.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

    Great Mum and trio of Aunts! I had two male mergansers and one female on Elmira Pond last spring and it resulted in a trio of baby mergansers.

    I didn’t know that the flying boxes sleep in casuarina ! Where did you come across a trio of freshwater crocs ? Your mum and her sisters is a WONDERFUL shot ! 🙂

    • The flying foxes used to live across the road . There was a colony of hundreds all hanging during the day. They hurt no-one and weren’t really near any domestic development. For some unknown reason they were moved on and now where they have settled the occupants of the houses want them destroyed. Hopefully they won’t win but I do understand their complaints. They should have been left alone.
      The crocs were at Steve Irwin’s Australia zoo.
      My Mum is with her aunts. They are my Grandfather’s sisters. They are all older than Mum but none yet 100. They had huge families in those days. If my Grandfather was still alive he would have been over 120. It is a wonderful shot. Just after it Mum slipped off her walker onto her bottom. That was a good shot too but she wouldn’t like it shown in public. 🙂
