Last on the Card – October 2021

Last Photo for October 2021

I am glad you are all having fun with Last on the Card. I love seeing your photos and usually you’ll get a comment. I have been asked if I plan my last photos. Sorry to disappoint, but no I don’t. Like a lot of people I forget and am surprised at what was the last photo on the three devices I use to take photos. This month I went from –

  • one of the best flower photos using my phone camera. This was taken so I could text to show my bestie the flowers. That was taken on Tuesday.
  • a repeat of Hammad’s Weekend Sky last Saturday. Not too bad for a foggy morning and a point and shoot camera.
  • to a lot of focus. This would have be better to get the Satin Bower Bird having a snack clearer. Taken through the office door on Thursday morning.

So let’s see what you have for October 2021

The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 31st October.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Tag “The Last Photo”

Here’s mine

Macro Monday 1 November

Everyone knows that everything in Australia will bite, sting, eat, trample, inject all sorts of chemicals – hepatotoxins, neurotoxins and hematotoxicity that can maim, make you giddy, cause unpleasant reactions (no detail here I am sure you know what I mean) and do lots of other stuff……maybe trample was an exaggeration.

The perpetrators can be as big… well as big as a crocodile or water buffalo, move as swiftly as a striking snake or be like this bloke.

Here I was, doing a spot of gardening when along he came, a Horse Fly, recognisable by the low pitched laconic drone. A few wary circles, like an aeroplane before landing. My name for them is B52’s. They are big, don’t fly around like they are in a rush and can be sneaky. He tried to land on my body and legs but after a few polite “oh do go away you pesky thing” he zoned in on my boot. He then commenced to gradually stroll up my boot towards an unprotected part of me so he could drill – oh yes drill – that long proboscis into my flesh and sneak off with a bit of blood. They will drill through light material.

This bloke is about 25 to 30mms or just over an inch
