I love the idea of Simple Things.
Like a little Super Fairy Wren looking for a snack
A row of chairs in a church in Verona
An old tap the one day may be turned on again in Venice
A blue bottle left on a plinth with blue graffiti in Bologna
Chimney pots in Paris
Days end in a cafe in my home town
Or the Simple Thing of finding that place to have a rest in my garden
Look at the Simple Things that other have found
M’s 52 Weeks Photo Challenge this week is Movement
How much movement is there in two Orchard Butterflies doing their mating dance!!!
The male actually flies backward towards the female
I did have to look for rain photos but why can’t I find any. I am sure there must be some somewhere. Oh well for 52 Week Photo Challenge I found these.
Looking out of the window at Sydney Harbour on a rainy day.
The raindrops on the Hipeastrum
The spiders web caught a few raindrops.
The challenge is shallow depth of field – 52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 32
The Hippeastrum is a fabulous flower to photo. Its large bell shaped flowers and striking colours give many an opportunity for some great photos. Throw in some Stingless Native Bees and you look into a busy tiny world.
The flowers are male and female. This is a female flower with the stigma ready for some pollen.
This is a male with the anthers full of pollen
All we need are some bees. Look how full the bees pollen baskets are.
Once a flower is found the tiny bees come to collect the pollen.
I wonder if they know there’s a spider in there.
With a title like that for 52 weeks photo challenge the sky’s the limit.
A little poem to start
From the top of the pine tree the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo can see all the empty space around
The Square-tailed Kite was being harassed by the Friarbird
Empty space abounds for the Jacky Winter perched on the old tree branch
The Wedged-tailed Eagles getting away with their lunch. The one on the right has a Water Dragon trailing from its feet.
The Ibis soared in the sky.
The Black-shouldered Kite has the perfect perch to survey his surroundings.
The Cormorant has many an empty space. One of my projects is to make some silhouettes of birds.
Where could there be more empty space than…..weellll……Space
