Butterflies are all around Durranbah

Jez’s Fan of…..#59

I am a fan of Butterflies but who isn’t?
There has been many many butterflies around my garden for quite a while. The Lemon Migrants were here in numbers for almost eight weeks and even now there are a few still here. There are some I haven’t managed to get a photo of in the past few weeks, little Line Blues, a white and black one who is too fast, perhaps a Yellow Albatross and other small butterflies who don’t sit for long.

Here is the butterflies I have managed to photograph. I hope you enjoy the butterflies of Durranbah.

Anchor

The Daily Word Prompt: Anchor

I found this anchor on the headland at Evans Head. It dates from around 1900 according to the plaque. I should have paid more attention to what was written, alas I did not. The anchor doesn’t come from a named vessel as it was found by fishermen caught in their nets. It is quite rusty which was the appeal.
