Spectacular flowering Marri

This year seems to be a particularly good one for flowering Marri trees (Corymbia calophylla). They are in full bloom in the hills at the moment. These are a few pics from Morangup this morning. Dryandra Rd in Morangup is a good place to go to see the rare pink flowering form.

The cockatoos are busy eating seeds from the green Marri nuts. I wonder if they think they are walking on a cloud with so much Marri blossom around them?
