Looking back

Lens-Artists Challenge #230: Last Chance

I was going to do a photo a month for the year but that was boring trying to find something interesting that I hadn’t already posted. I some of the folders I flicked through were some that were blog resized and named. It looks like I intended to do something with them but they somehow became lost some how.

I’ll start with a few things I found in my garden.

Perhaps a better photo of a Tufted Honeyeater was posted. This one actually shows the yellow tuft on the neck feathers

I remember the next two. I was going to do a post showing the difference of Line Blue butterflies.
The first photo shows how they were named Line Blue

But on the outside they have intricate patterns and shapes that make it so hard to ID what actual Line Blue Butterfly it is.
The Line Blues are about 10mm in length

A Fuscous Honeyeater contorting to get a drink from a Pink Pentas flower. Probably wasn’t used as some people object to birds bums.

and why wouldn’t I have found a reason to post a red leaf?

It looks like Tiny the King Parrot wants us to go outside for a while. This is one of his “Look at me, aren’t I cute” looks as he poses outside of my office window

Another photo ready to go but didn’t get anywhere. At least it is bright enough to start the day and have a look at what’s to come.

The Intermediate Egret coming into land among the old oyster racks

Livin’ the dream on the Queenlands Gold Coast

Heading back home here is an old wagon at the front entrance of a neighbours. I really like this photo and not sure why it was never used. The stalks of Barbed Wire Grass and seed heads add to the rural feel I think

Love seeing an afternoon Full Moon against a blue sky. Another unused photo together with the last photo below

Heading up the road, that farm has a variety of stock. I love Belties (Belted Galloways) as much as I like coos.
This one was a long way down the hillside and the focus wasn’t sharp. It did have a certain feel so I couldn’t help but play around a little

Later in the night Our Moon was further along the sky so a close up against a black sky can sometimes show some of the craters of the rocky moonscape

I did have to restrict my self as I wanted to post so much more but aimed for a variety where some photos may have a lot more going on. Like bird or insect photos usually involve a flower.

I am only an occasional Lens-Artists poster but have fun when the theme strikes a chord. I am looking forward for our Donna to start posting some wonderful prompts

  2. Well Brian, I left you a nice long note and it appears WP ate it so I’ll just say Happy Holidays and we hope to see much more of you in the new year. Nothing makes me smile more than your images of the beautiful creatures in your back yard!!

  3. You are the best. thank you. Lets hope I can hang in there.

    Anyway. I love the beltie. I call those Oreo cows as they are very rare me and when I saw them one day my kids were young, and off course they looked like Oreos.

    I too like the wagon wheel and I am surprised you haven’t used that before with rust or round. I like the look of it. The Tufted Honeyeater is a great capture as it’s color is balanced with the color of the background. My favorite is of the capture of the personality of your parrot. Always a pleasure. thanks again for your support Brian.
