“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”
If anyone has encountered a Masked Lapwing, they will give you the truth. Come near my nest and look out. Trouble is Masked Lapwings, or Plovers as they are generally known, lay their eggs anywhere they want. I have seen nests in the middle of football fields or on the grass verge on the side of a road.
They will defend their right to be casual egg layers quite violently. They have spurs on their wings which can be quite nasty if attacked.
“Susan and myself invite you to locate that one mysterious photo and write us your thoughts on it. Remember the photo is a flash back to the past and not a recent one of yourself or family ( unless of course you have an early photo of yourself which is welcomed). “
Well the words mysterious photo for the challenge made me think……..
Here is a rare family photo of the Red-necked Wallabies in my garden. It is not often that I see a Female and her Joey with a Male so close together.
Thanks for the support for this photo challenge. Fifty-six likes and twenty-four contributions!! It is growing and it was good to see last months lot of great last photos.
The rules are simple: 1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th June. 2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate. 3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do 4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments 5. Tag “The Last Photo”
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.
