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
