Round and blue and something deadly

January Colours and Letters Photo a Day Challenge – 20th: Starts with the letter Q

The round and blue part

Here is a few fruits of a Quandong tree also known as Blue Figs,

And now for the deadly part.

When I had chooks a few years ago, it was devastating to find dead birds after a Spotted-tailed Quoll paid a nocturnal visit. Notoriously hard to catch, I set the trap with a dead chook previously killed and I managed to trap it. I released the Quoll in the Gibraltar Range National Park in the morning. Once I opened the cage it was gone in milliseconds before I could get a photo of the Quoll not in the trap.

Last of the blues

Life in Colour July: Blue

End of the month so better get something in as I have been a bit slack with this photo challenge, sorry Jude.

Maybe I will end with a bit of blue in nature
