It’s the last day of Spring. It has been a Spring of change. Days of hot and dry. Days where some rain has fallen, just a few drops and others where there has been a bit of run-off to add a bit of water to the dams. The early Spring blogs have been full of new life. A lot of things have happened and I have seen lots of new things around here and when out and about. Here is my last day of Spring. Hope you had a great Spring too.
Some days it was great just to lie down and relax.
I just love it when I find something new, like this butterfly, an Australian Gull I think.
Another view of the butterfly that had me captivated as it flitted about the flowers on the dam,
The drink container made the perfect background for a spider photo. I took me about three goes to get the photo as it kept jumping onto the camera. It is so tiny.
Another new bug to get my attention was this Bee Fly.
Even in the heat of the day, dragonflies were buzzing around the garden, occasionally taking time for a breather, even if it is right on top of a Grevillea.
I couldn’t go past this waterlily with its subtle shade of pink.
There has been a couple of Spangled Drongo’s hanging around at the moment. This bloke had just dropped in for a splash in the bird bath.
He always waited for the Rainbow Lorikeets to finish so he wouldn’t be nagged by them.
“I wonder what those lorikeets have been doing in here?”
They have a nest in a rather open part of a Spotted Gum near the house. They certainly know how to tie a nest onto a branch even if the nest is a bit scrappy looking.
Remember the photos of the Fantail nest and the young. Here is the surviving baby following the parents around the place.
It has been a good year for the wallabies. Many of the females have a joey in the pouch. This one was just outside the kitchen this morning.
Well Spring has gone and now to have my Summer adventures.
