It’s time for Debbies Six Word Saturday
“Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.
I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.”
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Feathers
When thinking about this photo challenge I was flooded with so many ideas, funnily enough, I seem to have lots of feathers in my folders.
But my thoughts turned to where all this photo challenge started. One day in 2014 I received a comment asking about my post. I started chatting with Yvette from https://priorhouse.blog/ who encouraged me to enter photo challenges.
You may wonder what this has to do with feathers I guess. The post that Yvette found was My Rooster
Yvette asked if she could link my post to her post Of course I said yes. From this, I met Paula who also encouraged me to enter photo challenges. Yes these two are responsible for my addiction to photo challenges.
OK on to the feathers of Flaming Prince who is no longer with us but his memory lives on in bushboys world
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Courage
The Wedged-tailed Eagle has his lunch, a Water Dragon, and is being harassed by a Magpie. It takes courage to fly near a Magpie nest
A Square-tailed Kite soars above the forest much to the displeasure of a Noisy Friarbird. The shape to the left rear of the Kite is the Friarbird about to give the Kite a good kick.
The courage of much smaller birds defending their territory against large birds of prey takes courage don’t you think?
The May Photo a Day Challenge from Maria at CitySonnet: Silhouette
I have been doing silhouettes for quite some time now. These are my original photos converted to black and white and the outline of the birds redrawn by hand. The black enhanced and filled but not “flood filled” but each pixel or a group of pixels. The same process with the white part of my photograph.
I haven’t done any new ones for a while now as it is rather time consuming. I haven’t applied borders. When the photo is framed it doesn’t need a border but on the web page perhaps. I hope you enjoy my bird silhouettes.
This is the first one I attempted. A White-faced Heron who was sitting on a tree in my garden.
A Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo flying at my place
The distinctive tail shape of a Spangled Drongo
Another easily identified bird by their tail – a Rainbow Bee Eater

The Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge from Sue: Peaceful
I have so much peaceful around here everyday. They come and sit in the trees, walk about the garden and their coos can be heard through the forest.
What peaceful you ask? Well Peaceful Doves of course
The word prompt from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Technology
There are many uses for technology. The use of electricity has made life for us humans easier than in the past. In order to make electricity accessible, we have to have infrastructure to ensure technology and vast possibilities are within our grasp. The intricate designs and use of materials to carry the power to us are around us everyday.
There are many uses of our technology
