Hammad’s Weekend Sky#15

A little bit of rain over the past week. Everything has grown like crazy in the garden. Your song for the day

Wispy clouds and a couple of Australian Ravens flew past this morning

and one with the rising sun through the trees

A bit of orange

Kate’s Friday Fun: Orange

Let’s start with a bit of a song to get you in an orange mood

Mostly macro in this bunch of images
A tiny shiny orange fungi

Orange beak and legs, as Kate said, strolling along the beach

Orange eyes of a Brown Ringlet Butterfly

Orange Trumpet flowers are the Spring flowers here now

There is always the orange of a Honey Gem Grevillea flowering in the garden

The delicate orange of the Frangipanni

The wild orange of a Leopard Lily

The vibrant orange of a setting sun

My friend said to me “Nothing rhymes with orange!”
“No it doesn’t,” I said.

Goodbye black birds

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.

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

Just walking around

Tracy’s Corvid-2020 Weekly Challenge #8

After weeks of frustration of trying to get a photo of one of the Australian Ravens that hang around my place, lately some have taken to just walking around the garden with the swagger only a Raven can do.

Walking around the garden

Tracy’s Corvid 2020 Weekly Challenge 6

Remember previous conversations about hearing the Australian Ravens around my place but not being able to get a good photo. Well a couple of days ago, a Raven was casually strolling around the garden in the late afternoon. So as not to frighten the Raven off I took a few photos through the kitchen window as the casual stroll. Yesterday, the Raven was again walking around the garden. Perhaps it does a garden stroll everyday and I just don’t see it.

Here is the allusive Raven walking around the garden.
