I would be very remiss if I didn’t use my lovely Red-necked Wallabies who hop around my garden and lovingly tend their Joeys for Paulas photo challenge – Female.
This young female is so pretty don’t you think?
But also camera shy.
“What are you doing in there?”
“It’s OK Mum, I’m just chilling”
One day you will have some fur on those skinny arms.
“Mums pouch is the best place to be”

Traces of the Past
My little piece of history may be thousands of years old as the Aboriginal culture is the oldest culture in history. I discovered these artifacts on my property many years ago. On a walk with friends I first came upon the stone hand axe or cutting tool. The photos don’t really show the sharpness the edge. When I first picked the tool up, it fitted into my hand so wonderfully well.
The second discovery was made a while later. It is the stone that was used to chip off bits of stone to make the hand axe possibly. Again the smooth roundness of the back fitted into my hand perfectly.

What Vehicle would be the most appropriate for the letter V!!! Only a VW would do. This is my besties sons which one day will be resuscitated.
The Water Vine is huge as it uses itself to climb higher through the trees in the rainforest
What a great photo challenge from Lost in Translation. Vernal is an inspirational adjective bringing thoughts of Spring – it’s colours and promise of life. It is the middle of Autumn here in Australia, so my selection of photos are from last years spring. Hoping it brings joy to you and your Spring.
The blossoms of the nectarine tree in the early morning
Of course what would blossoms be without bees
The little native Blue-banded Bee loves to scrunch to get the nectare
and of course there are butterflies everywhere in my garden
The birds come for the flowers too
Odd Balls. Those photos that are the ones you in someway like but not too sure where they fit in your photo galleries. I have lots of Odd Balls and so do other photographers. Have a look at the other Odd Balls
I love rust. Its colours and textures. I don’t know what this old piece of machinery was used for, perhaps moved things from the boats to the works on the headland. I found it in South Australia.
The creativity in making this seat is wonderful. It is on a friends property in South Australia too.
Can you guess what this photo is? I took this photo of a pool on my property with a Water Strider on the surface. Its feet aren’t really that big as the shadow shows.
Falling Water is the theme from Dutch Goes the Photos Tuesday Challenge Have a look at the great photos others have contributed
