It may seem I have an obsession with colours over the past month. The Tuesday word prompt from Ragtag Daily Prompt: Orange
There are many an orange fungi
I love the burst of colour when the Orange Hippeastrums appear in my garden.
The Orange Trumpet flower looks lovely as it is draped over the old shed.
The favourite Grevillea, Honey Gem, of the birds, insects and me.
Another star of the garden
The Leopard Lily adds a splash of colour to my garden.
I can’t remember where I found this or what the name of flower is, just a great bit of orange.
I said there was more orange fungi. These tiny ones pop up through the grass around the garden after some good rain.
The Dragonfly has a hint of orange
Just had to include a bird. The Rainbow Lorikeet has such a vivid orange chest.
A small Orange Palm Dart Butterfly
Down by the Clarence River in Grafton, a Great Cormorant spent a bit of time with a fish. Here is the Cormorants Tale of fishing in the afternoon.
One afternoon, a head popped out of the water. Yes!!! I have a fish.
It is a rather big fish, I hope I can eat it.
I wish it would stop wriggling about.
oops….almost dropped it
Phew, managed to get it back again.
Ahhh…………this is the way to get a fish down, head first here we go.
Perhaps a bit of a dunking will help the fish slide down my neck.
Bloody hell Janice, it’s my fish, now go away. I’m not sharing!
Peace at last. Now to get it in the right position.
Watch this folks……a bit of flip and catch
Bugger the fish is sideways again.
Ah well, perhaps it will go down after all.
With all of that, the Great Cormorant decided to fly further upstream to enjoy his snack. Did the fish get eaten? I suspect so.
Paula has supplied some good words this month for Pick a Word
I hope I can do her words justice with my photos this month. I do so love this photo challenge. I have done a bit of cheating using one of Kimskys drawings but I did take the photo for her portfolio.
My thirteenth photo for Becky’s square photo challenge: In the Pink
Another non nature photo. A elephant cushion cover found in a shop
If you want to join in here are a few ideas from Becky.
The theme for squares this month is ‘In the Pink‘ and the one rule as always is that your main photograph must be square. After that the world is your oyster, or should I say flamingo?! To help you get started here are some ideas you might want to consider;
- ‘In the Pink’ – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!
- ‘Tickled Pink‘ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.
- Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink
- There is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?
Squares is a daily challenge, so your photographs can be from the archives or brand new. Don’t forget though to keep your photo square, and to pingback with #InthePink.
