Size

Here is Debbies One Word Sunday: Size
Some of the things I have been contemplating on contributing for OWS perhaps can also be some of my Favourite Things as Patti from Ragtag asked.
Perhaps some of the small things in my world should be a start. The feature photo is a Scarlet Honeyeater, the smallest honeyeater and a red jewel that flashes through my garden and the forest.

I love having Stingless Native Bees in my garden

I have to include some big things too. Kookaburras are always hunting in the garden and waking me with their morning song

Now a warning for those who have a thing about spiders – there is one in the next image

 

 
Isn’t she a beauty. She lived in my laundry for a Summer and then came into the lounge and dining rooms for Winter last year. I think she became bored of my company and headed outside.170315_side view_huntsman_size

      1. I apparently missed the caption of wallaby. I failed to notice it the first time I scrolled on the photos. Apparently, I was so engrossed looking at those beautiful shots.

    1. Thank you Tracy πŸ™‚ Yes she is the biggest Huntsman I have seen and so glad she hung around the house, my natural pest control. The Kite photo is easy when they fly over the house and scare the shit out of the chook

  1. Wow!! Beautiful. I take it she is harmless but helpful. You’d laugh at the little spider that surprised me, in good way, in the garden yesterday as I weeded. It’s probably the size of the Huntsman’s foot!

  2. I scrolled before I read and near almost fainted when I saw the size of that spider. And you let it live in your house???????????
    Oh my. I had to go back and look at that adorable Kookaburra- to get a new image to stick in my head.

    1. I put that warning in especially for you as well Lisa. Huntsman spiders are totally harmless and so good at eating other insects. She is not the only one.
      Thank you for taking the time to have a look at so many posts. ❀
      I guess your new computer is working well πŸ™‚
