How many reds

Life in Colour August: Red

This is my look at photos from the first “red” (it took a while to work out the easiest way to search for an image – duh!) to the last one posted probably last week, as it’s the end of the month already. My way of saying goodbye to red and hello to ????

The first RED – a Red-necked Wallaby and Joey in March 2012 in my messy looking front yard

March 2012 – RED fungi make an appearance

September 2013 – RED-browed Firetail Finch dropped in for a bath

January 2014 – A random RED flower

February 2015 – A wonderful scented RED Rose

August 2016 – A favourite RED Skimmer Dragonfly photo

March 2017 – lot’s of RED-necked Wallaby photos to choose from

July 2017 – RED Skimmer Dragonflies were keeping an eye on me too

January 2018 – My computer time was interrupted by a RED insect walking across my desk. Assassin Bugs are so cool; see the red hook in the front, they use that to hold their lunch and quietly munch away. Also comes with spiky defenses and camouflage of sort. Size – around 10-30mm If unfortunately stung just a bit of localised pain that doesn’t last long. Remember never poke the insect

November 2018 – One of my favourite RED Dahlia photos

August 2019 – I love RED and yellow Torch Ginger Flowers. They are a haven for small insects.

July 2019 – I love my wheelbarrows filled with RED Hippeastrums

November 2019 – I am getting cuttings of this RED Frangipanni.

November 2019 – This reminds me. It’ll be soon time for Becky’s next #square photo challenge – 33 days. This one was from a Blue or was it RED square photo challenge? This also works for the next Square photo challenge in “October – is going to be a month of Past Squares. A month to share memories, personal favourites, leftover squares and also have fun with themes you have always wanted to try.”

December 2019 – RED Christmas fireworks

June 2020 – another new visitor to the garden in the six months after that fire. The bush was recovering and just around my house was a garden and sanctuary, so the small birds I used to see in the bush but not around the house came around more often like this little RED-backed Wren

September 2020 – A good year for the Zygote Cactus to show their RED flower

April 2021 – the end of a particularly warm Autumn day…

….and this final RED adventure. The Header from April 2021 – RED Callistemon (Bottlebrush) and a Scarlet Jezebel Butterfly

    1. Thanks Susan πŸ™‚ I think the first person to see and name them saw a male in mating season with his sexy red ruff. There is even one around here who is almost grey πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  1. How very clever of you! I think I shall stay clear of the Assassin Bugs, but I do like that lovely little red wren. Thank you for all your contributions BB. You have definitely excelled yourself today! Hope you like the next colour!

    1. Thanks ever so much Becky πŸ™‚ I have been enjoying going through the old folders. Assassin Bugs just look scary when close up but so small and so red. There are around 300 types of Assassin Bug in Australia! πŸ™‚
