Looking for the right photos for this weeks Cee’s Black and White photo challenge I thought I would use some of my favourite Australian bird photos and one reptile.
A Parrot – A Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo
Just an Osprey walking along the beach
A parrot about to get a dunking in the bird bath
The Python who was removed from the chook house before it could eat any of the hens
The after and before photos of a little Scarlet Honeyeater, the smallest of Australias honeyeaters, in an Australian native tree, a Pink Euodia. Scarlet Honeyeaters whizz around my garden like red jewels flashing in the sun.
Another of my favourite challenges Cee’s Black & White Letter Photo Challenge
Black and white. The Magpie is black and white
It’s feeding time at the Grey Fantails Nest
And one of my favourite things – our Moon
This is an interesting challenge. I thought I had more photos to choose from to participate in Paula’s Black & White Sunday photo challenge.
The spiral stairs from below
The stairs to the bridge that are next to our favourite place to stay in Venice
It is great that some of the cars of yesterday still exist. Wouldn’t you love to drive this old Ford?
The McKay Petrol engine made in Australia in around 1913 was used on farms for anything you could think of. The engine was running, you can see the wheel spinning in the photo.
Here is the brochure for the engine
The Autumn breezes are just right for kites
An Australian Landscape – looking towards the Comboyne Plateau
A Lion from London
The iconic Australian bird the Kookaburra
What a challenge! I couldn’t think of anything then a bit of inspiration kicked in which led to too many ideas.
Looking through to a garden in Rome.
One of the many colonnades in Bologna
Letting the ferry through the lock in Paris
Looking through time in the 12th Century church in Verona
Not many through photos from Australia as the ideas of those came to late
For this Black and White challenge I decided to go small
Startling green eyes aren’t they?
My entries for this weeks Photo Challenge
I am sure there will be photos of Elephants in this photo challenge. Here is mine, found in a secondhand shop.
Flying and almost flying
Face washing. Don’t you hate when your Mum just has to wash your face!
Flower. The Moon Flower blooms at night so it was special to be there when the flower came out
Here is some of my elephant collection https://bushboy.blog/2015/02/21/elephants/
For this photo challenge I have dug around for some insects. The difference in a black and white photo from the colour insects can have can be quite remarkable. These two photos aren’t that remarkable in colour. They have translated well into black and white I feel.

The Dragonfly was sitting quite high in the tree
