Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Trains and Tracks
Debbie’s quotation inspired image
“I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free… so other people would be also free.– Rosa Parks
to restrict freedom
waiting for the tremble
to be free
what to do
what it means
to be free
to feel the wind
On the Hunt for Joy Challenge Week 34: Add an Element of Nature
Around my place there is always a bit of nature popping in. May contain images of spiders and snakes. Click on the small images to see the full photo.
Sorry about the layout. The new block editor wouldn’t load a gallery of images. Spent too much time trying to work out what the *%&#$ was wrong.
The final Corvid 2020 Weekly Challenge
It’s been fun trying to get photos of Australian Ravens over the past thirteen weeks. They can be allusive and at first I couldn’t post any Raven photos every week. Suddenly I had an Australian Raven in my garden. This Raven drops in most mornings and struts around the garden giving some photo opportunities. A few mornings ago, when seeing me and the camera, he flew into a tree and complained loudly that I was spoiling the morning garden inspection.
Giving me the eye
The morning shower and sitting on one of the favourite spots – the garden bench
Have to go now. So it’s goodbye to the weekly challenge
Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Drama
Where is the

in the air?

Perhaps a drama

trivial to most
where a drama
Oh the drama
where would we
without a drama
Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Plant Life Grows Around Us
I had intended doing a walk around the garden today but rain, glorious rain stopped that adventure. Here is a bit of a glimpse at my garden from the 2020 archives.
The Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: For the Birds
A few years ago my shaky hand recorded a Scarlet Honeyeater in the Lilli Pilli at my place. For this challenge my blog mate Sue chose Birdsong for this challenge so I thought it was a great idea. Here’s my birdsong from a Scarlet Honeyeater, the smallest Honeyeater in Australia, in my garden.
Lens-Artists Challenge #100 – The Long and Winding Road
A gallery of the roads that lead to my place. The first one has a Wedged-tailed Eagle heading down the road when I disturbed it having a meal one morning.
Just turn left and we’re home
OK. This is the first go at using the editor for my monthly wrap-up. I usually write about the photos before the image and now I may have to use captions. I reckon you should know what the image is before you see it not after, especially for those who follow my blog and are a bit “wary” of my spiders and snakes. I like to put in a warning. Loading the images individually would solve this but it may be time consuming, we’ll see anyway.
May was the last of Autumn and I did get out and about as this is a lovely time of year here, not too hot and the Winters chill hasn’t fully arrived. Many flowers are blooming and some on the wane. There are the usual birds still around and haven’t departed for warming climates and the Winter birds are yet to arrive.
Maybe I should start with the misty mornings that are part of the landscape.
I bet you are wondering about Joey and how he’s been getting on, so let’s visit him and Mum first on a wet morning.
There is also another new Joey in the garden
The birds – Tiny, the King Parrot, was still around in May with his partner
The insects are slowing down although there are still some Butterflies about. A selection from my place and my Besties
Speaking of flowers, I did manage to capture a couple of blooms in my Besties garden as there was a bit more rain at her place than at mine. I don’t have many flowers in my garden.
Here is the random images found while in Tenterfield, a town about 150kms from my place in the tablelands.
Sometimes Red-necked Wallabies are quite dainty eaters
I love finding Koalas when we go for a walk. This Koala did wake up and wonder what we were doing chatting away while it was trying to sleep
The Sunset on the way home from Tenterfield was rather special. Amazing reds and oranges. This was the afternoon I captured the Raven at sunset one of my favourite photos for May
Our Moon is up so I better get going.
Hope you enjoyed a stroll through my May. Did you have a favourite image? This did take a bit longer than usual and I couldn’t jump around with the images as it was easier to do them in groups. Was the setting out ok and did it flow well enough for you? Thanks for the visit and see you again soon.
