Macro Monday 19 July

A while ago for Macro Monday, I posted a photo of a Firesprite Grevillea in my garden, which was just developing. Here is the flower that has opened after two weeks.

There are lots of other flowers starting to develop. A new one on the right hand side of the photo.

Above our heads

Debbie’s quotation-inspired image

Overhead the tree-tops meet,
Flowers and grass spring ‘neath one’s feet;
There was nought above me, and nought below

– from Overhead the tree-tops meet by Robert Browning

H is for bird

I don’t have an abundance of H birds just a few Herons……

Pacific Heron

There are a lot of Honeyeaters starting with the striking Blue-faced Honeyeater

This is an Endangered Honeyeater I was very lucky to have in my garden for a few minutes, a Regent Honeyeater

Little Yellow-faced Honeyeaters are rather feisty when they have to be

Brown Honeyeaters are very quick as they decide what flower to try next

Lewins Honeyeaters are quite common

Fuscous Honeyeaters come to the waterhole on my place to drink

New Holland Honeyeaters are easy to spot with their black and white stripes and yellow wings

Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters are very pretty
