The Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Escape
Debbies Six Word Saturday
Todays Prompt: Robin
How could I not post and share with a prompt like this
Here is a female Eastern Yellow Robin.
The male Eastern Yellow Robins are a bit more colourful
The little Rose Robins are a treat to see
And for something completely different a Robin Gordon Grevillea
Hammad’s Weekend Sky #63
So glad to have Weekend Sky back after an April break Hammad. I didn’t take any Saturday morning photos from the usual spot as they would have all looked much like these. I have had quite a wet few months and this morning was no exception. The sky is grey and I am not sure why the photos have a sepia look about them. All my weekend sky photos are untouched with post photo editing, apart from naming and now resizing.
The usual looking east photo
And looking north. The sun will soon be rising to the right hand side of the photo
Todays bonus photo is a Pied Currawong who came to sticky-beak at what I was doing, from the tree in the bottom right of the first photo, and about to make a fast getaway.

Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Emerging from…?
An emerging or a beginning?
Emerging from the night, a sunrise is a good start
Let’s begin with the flowers. A Grevillea starting to open
I think this is a Dahlia
A pink Hibiscus
A lovely Rose
Now for a bit of nature, some not as pretty as flowers. Willie Wagtail chicks not long out of the shell and eyes aren’t open yet.
Welcome Swallow Chicks are always hungry and ready as Mum flies in
I love seeing the Joeys when they start to hesitantly pop their heads from their Mums pouch
Wide eyed they survey their world and keep an eye on the bloke with a camera although Mum doesn’t care all that much
A rare moment finding a Cicada emerging from its shell
My favourite emerging photo
and an emerging moonrise is a goodnight
John’s Cellpic Sunday
This is where I do an explanation of my phone photo from my Last on the Card post.
On Thursday afternoon I heard and saw a group of Kookaburras chasing each other around the garden. I suspect the parents were trying to send an offspring out of their patch to start life somewhere else.
Suddenly there was a loud banging and crashing in my house. I went to investigate and found a Kookaburra in the loungeroom next to the back door. There was a small hole in the screen door and I slowly slid the door across and the Kookaburra flew out. Once outside there was a loud cackling of all the Kookaburras in the trees.
Here is the back screen door and the beak shaped hole
I wondered about the hole as it was small and the wire was bent outwards. After a while I went to go out of the front door and this is what I found.
The wire on the screen is not soft nylon it is metal wire, not as hard as the rear screen door but hard enough. I was amazed that the Kookaburra wasn’t badly injured.

Last Photo for April 2022
Sorry for being a bit late with this Last on the Card. Thank you to everyone who contributes their good and not so good photos. Like a lot of people I forget and am surprised at what was the last photo on the three devices I use to take photos. I went from –
- the weird with a good story
- to the usual Weekend Sky
- to a lot of focus would be better
So let’s see what you have for April 2021
The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th April.
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”
