Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Unusual Perspective
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Quest
I have always liked the idea of a quest probably from reading King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table as a youngster.
Over the years I have set myself a number of quests. These quests involve getting a photo of something I have seen but never able to get any good photos. I have written about one such Quest
I take my self imposed quests quite seriously, much to the bemusement of my bestie who sometimes won’t stop the car when I see what could be an opportunity or calls out when we are going out “What are you doing?” Most times I am ready to go but just outside chasing butterflies, dragonflies, stalking a bird or getting that perfect shot of a flower.
Here are some of my quest conquests.
A Blue Triangle Butterfly. They don’t land that often and have an erratic flight.
A Royal Spoonbill. I have a few photos but never seemed to be able to get close enough for a good photo.
Rainbow Bee-eaters. Always on the move, never settling for long.
Catching that Bee in flight
The featured photo. Always trying to get birds in flight. An ongoing quest.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pairs
There used to live in my street a number of people, who have since moved on, who used to put out bird seed mainly for the parrots. Since then I have a pair of King Parrots who come to the trees around the house and whistle. I don’t like to feed the birds but I have a bowl of seed I put out every now and then for this pair of King Parrots.
They are a couple and it is thought that they mate for life, that is why there is nearly always a pair of King Parrots in my garden.
He always lets her eat first when they arrive on the verandah together. Keeping a wary eye on me.
Then they swap around and she keeps her eye on me while he eats.
Welcome back Bren with a theme for the Photo for the Week Challenge: Birds
Instead of having a bird overload I decided just to play with a photo to make things a bit different than my usual stock standard bird photo.
There is a road we drive along where we take in the scenery and hope there will be something special along the way. One particular drive, around a bend something colourful flashed in front of the car and landed on a barbed wire fence just beside car. It was a couple of Rainbow Bee-eaters. Beautiful little birds.
