The rose

Bren’s Mid-Week Monochrome #100

To help celebrate Mid-Week Monochromes 100th Anniversary, I am posting something that I have been promising to post for quite sometime but always seem to find another subject.

So finally, a flower. In real life this rose is a lovely yellow.

This afternoon and tonight

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Connects you to the present moment

Photo taken as the sun was setting this afternoon

This photo was taken about ten minutes ago. I love being able to see the craters on Our Moon

Our Moon connects us all. No matter where we live on this planet, our Moon connects us. We all see the same moon albeit from a different axis. This moon also connects us to our ancestors who also saw the same moon. Go outside and look at Our Moon and think of me also looking at the same time, feeling a cosmic thread that connects us all.

I am a Child of the Moon

This is very different Rolling Stones sound from the psychedelic are of 60’s music

Letting you into my groove

The Lens-Artists Challenge #211: What’s Your Photographic Groove

What’s my photographic groove? I don’t have one particular theme except for showcasing the flora and fauna of Australian and quite often from my place.

The native bees here are lovely bees, they don’t sting and are small. The Blue-banded bee and the Teddy Bear Bees are favourites.

The wonderful birds are probably my all time favourite things to photograph. All of these are from my place except for the Golden-headed Cisticola on the barbed wire fence.

I love to have butterflies in my garden. The Blue Triangle Butterfly was one that was never here. When I first saw one many years ago, I made it one of my photographic quests to get a photo, which took a while as they are very shy butterflies. I finally managed to get one. The photo here. A few years later, they turned up in my garden

Of course I have to include the animals which are unique to Australia. I did have Koalas who used my place a s trail to get from one area to another. I never saw any but could here there calls at night. Since the fires of 2019, I haven’t seen or heard any. I did often see Dingoes or heard them calling in the night. Again they have disappeared from the landscape. I always have Red-necked Wallabies in the garden but they too are in reduced numbers. The big Eastern Grey Kangaroos used to travel through the bottom of my place where the bush isn’t as thick but never around the house. There are always Brush-tailed Possums as well.

I could not go without leaving a few native flowers, Bottlebrush, a Purple Fringe Lily, a Paperbark flower and Eucalypt flowers with a Brown Honeyeater atop.

I hope it was fun peeking into bushboys world
