The rain on the window from the 75th floor overlooking Sydney Harbour
A close look at the rain on the window
What could be more rainbow than a bird bath of Rainbow Lorikeets?
Looking at you
Or a tree with Rainbow Bee Eaters
Or just a double rainbow
This is a bit more dramatic from my bushboy YouTube channel
More great rain inspired photos at Cees
I love sunsets and sunrises, the colours and sense of time they invoke.
Lots of great photos at Cee’s. Drop in and have a look at Sunset and Sunrises
The variety of colours in the setting sun
The clouds have many shapes and colours
Yellows are golden sunsets
Feel the heat of the setting sun
Once darkness descends, some people come out to play
Special flowers find the moonlight is their time to shine
Our Moon lights the way
The eastern sky comes alive as the sun pushes it’s way into the morning sky. A golden glow
Or a fiery orange to herald a new day, a new life
I wanted to put some leaves of interest out there for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Leaves
Aren’t leaves fabulous with their shapes and colours?
I am doing a combination of photo challenges. These photos are for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Leaves or Trees and the Daily Post word prompt: Branch
Again I have been experimenting with what my Canon Powershot can do as well as utilising some features of my photo program Corel Paintshop Pro 2018. I hope you like the results of what my camera and I can do to enhance my experimental photos
This is the original photo
Did you have a favourite?
Cee’s word prompt: Wildlife for this weeks Fun Foto Challenge
I thought I would post a bit of Australian cute for this photo challenge
Did you have to wake me?
I am so tired
Hey buddy……….look over there
I really need to sleep
Yeah yeah……everyone loves these fluffy ears
Koalas are not bears
I just had to do another post for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Birds
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge topic: Birds
I think I may have a photo or two of a bird or two I could use for this photo challenge. I took these a couple of days ago. It’s just a few so no need to get set in for a while.
A flurry of wings sounded as the large White-headed Pigeon alighted on the bird bath with a watchful gaze.
A short while later, a young White-headed Pigeon flew in, it’s grey plumage starting to turn white.
The parent bird was vigilant as the young one took a drink.
Such a lovely looking bird don’t you think?
This week the topic is Letter Z – Needs to have the letter Z anywhere in the word or people or animals catching some Zzz’s (sleeping or napping).
Have a look at the other ZZZZ’s at Cees place
On a hot day as it has been so far this week (daytime temperatures between 35 to 39C ) it is good to get out of the heat and stretch out, catch a bit of the breeze that blows along the verandah and have a lovely sleep
It can be a bit warm when the iron roof heats up
You have to curl up a bit. The bulge on the right hand side is someone who was her lunch
I think I may have woken her up
PS Carpet snakes are pythons who squeeze their prey and swallow whole. They are not venomous but can bite if they absolutely have to. I have been bitten a couple of times mainly removing the snakes from the chook house where they like to get an easy meal at night. They have back fangs which means their fangs face backward which they use to drag their meal down to their stomach. They can be handled but they do tend to squeeze as they hang on, like having your blood pressure taken.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: the letter Y – Needs to be at the start or end with the letter Y
I have been contemplating this foto challenge and decided to go with a basic lot of Y photos. Can you guess my theme?
