As usual I have been out and about finding stuff and having stuff find me. There has been some nice moments as well as some that were a bit on the reptilian side. The world still is an amazing place with wonders that has colour from the sky above to the little creatures who live among us. If you love being alive to experience stuff then come with me to the things I find that sometimes take my breath away or make me sit and watch with amazement.
Let’s begin with a wonderous morning sky. Not a barrage of colour, just light bright sky with the most amazing clouds.
This time I am going to get the photos that could frighten some people out-of-the-way early. So if you are scared of reptile have a quick scroll now. I love Goannas, except when the eat my chooks eggs!! When I can I catch them and move them up the road to eat someone elses eggs ha ha ha. This one was a bit big – around 2 meters and the cat treed him.
You can see how they manage to climb a tree so quickly.
But they have interesting faces.
OK You can stop scrolling here if that was too much for you delicate constitutions.
The dam at the top of the road often has some interesting visitors. The other day two different species of Heron were stalking the edges, a White Faced Heron…
And a Pacific Heron
While a Pacific Baza watched from a nearby tree, probably eyeing off the chooks
The large bits of the world are always easy to see and find but it’s often the small that take my eye. Some bugs just wander into my world, wander about for a while then off they go on important bug business. Remember that Shield Bug
This time the dragonfly flitting about was a brilliant red not like the last one who was more a yellow colour
While the Cassia are in flower the bees buzz about. This bloke was given a pat on the back for a flower visit.
And as always there are butterflies…The Speckled Line Blue was playing catch with another. It was fun to watch one hide until discovered by the other and then they just spiralled into the air until one zipped away and hid.
And the Northern Ringlet – I think – has great spot “eyes” to keep predators at bay.
As butterflies enjoy flowers, so do I, the colours and shapes are a source of great photos.
And again this time a yellow explosion from the ground
Have you ever looked closely at a Hydrangea flower
Silk Tree flowers have great colour and form but do look a bit messy as they don’t last long.
Well the sun is going down once again, February has had a bit of variety hasn’t it?
Thanks for the visit….see you next time
