A tiny bite of March

Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: March

Around my place I have some March Flies with a rather large proboscis which they enjoy drilling into your flesh. Come along a journey of flies.

Getting ready to enjoy my flesh

These I call B52’s as they are big and slow moving but when they get you you really know it

A B52 just minding its own business hoping I wouldn’t notice it on my boot

Some just wander around until you are unsuspecting

Look at the stinger on this one. These are the silent one you don’t know are there until they stick that stinger in.

This is another strong and silent type

Don’t let the pretty green eyes fool you. Look at the size of that drill

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #59

It looks like the big rains have gone and the ground is starting to dry. No longer squelchy when I walk around the garden. There are still rain around and storms are predicted for some areas still. I hope for a sunny day today and by the looks of it, it could be. I feel deeply for friends and family in Lismore, the Richmond catchment who took the brunt of what is being called a rain bomb, over 600mls in some places in a few hours, and for those in my catchment whose houses and farms have been flooded with water still on the ground almost two weeks later.

Anyway here’s your song for the day

Not a cloud to be seen this morning

The sun saying good morning to the gum trees
