In my garden

This is a multi photo challenge post. Of course it features birds in my garden for Lisa’s Bird Weekly Photo Challenge as well as Tina from the Len-Artists Challenge #120 – What a Treat
Also sneaking in a photo for Basil’s Life Captured Photo Prompt: Transitioning

All the following photos are taken in my garden either walking about or from the verandahs. My home is a treat for seeing birds, insects and animals as well as flowers. Here is a song to listen to as you take a stroll with me in my garden.

This is a King Parrot transitioning from juvenile to adult male

King Parrots can be cheeky. This one is looking through my office door to see what I am doing

Blue-faced Honeyeater and a Bottle Brush flower

The Little Friarbirds like the nectar from the grevillea flowers

Everyone loves a little Eastern Yellow Robin as they hop around the garden

There is always a surprise find in the garden. I think it may be a Lacewing hunting among the leaf litter

The Yellow-faced Honeyeaters chitter chatter in the garden

Dragonflies are always flitting about or just watching on a stick

Of course I could let a post about my garden go without including a Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey

So many butterflies in my garden throughout the year. Scarlet Jezebels arrive in September in time to take advantage of the Pentas flowers

Scarlet Honeyeaters are flashing jewels as they fly about seeking nectar from flowers like this Pink Euodia

The Orchard Swallowtail Butterflies are the largest butterflies in my garden

The Hippeastrums are flowering now and the tiny Stingless Native Bees just love them

Rainbow Lorikeets add so much colour to my graden

  1. How big is that Lacewing for real? THAT big??? Love a dragonfly, but the Lacewing is bordering on a little too “buggy” for me. I think. Beautiful, but buggy. Of course all those birds are candy to my eyes πŸ˜€

    1. I may have to actually ID that what I called a lacewing. Perhaps I am wrong but it did look a bit scary but harmless. Glad you enjoyed my selection of birds Lisa πŸ™‚

  2. Wow Brian – have you ever heard the phrase “an embarrassment of riches”? That is indeed what you’ve shown us this week. My goodness what a glorious set of images and what a variety of colorful creatures. Of course I’m a sucker for the little joey but oh my those beautiful birds! So happy to joined us with these beauties!

  3. What a wonderful garden you have! How large is it? I went with birds this week as well for the Lens-Artists Challenge, but they aren’t from my garden. In the Arizona desert, gardens are quite different, so I really enjoyed yours. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks janet πŸ™‚ The garden is just around the house on three sides and not all that big. I have planted lots of bird and insect attracting plants. I refrain from making too many gardens as when it’s dry here it’s hard to keep the water up to the plants. The drought was two and a half years, the dams almost empty and I lost a lot of plants especially about eight large palms 😦
