Becky has started a new photo challenge for March #SpikySquare Drop into Beckys Spiky Square site for some details and other peoples spiky photos.
The rules are simple:
Have fun interpreting the spikiness but don’t forget there is ONE absolute rule for this daily photo challenge – your main photograph must be square.
I had to ha ha ha
The Daily Word Prompt from Sheryl: Relaxation
The Daily Word prompt: Brood
I saw the word and of course I thought of my chooks or poultry or chickens for those non-Aussies reading this post.
The word prompt from Debbie at Travel With Intent: Where
Where have these photos been taken?
From my desk in the office through the glass door
A chook often comes to see what I am doing
A Noisy Friarbird looking in the door
The Kookaburra heard me move I think
A Brush-tailed Possum found a snack
A tiny Spotted Pardalote investigating for insects
The Rose Robin was tweeting away
Sometimes a Huntsman Spider will find insects hovering around the computer screen
Around the house, there are a number of small artworks on 100X100mm canvases so its back to squares in squares for #March Square
Someones artwork found in an op-shop. Value for .50c It may be reworked by my bestie

Drop into Beckys for more March Squares
November saw a number of birds who came within my camera view. Many are regular visitors.
One “visitor” is my chook. This photo is through the door from my office. She likes to come looking for me and knocks on the door if I don’t pay her any attention.
Another visitor is a King Parrot. When I am outside, he comes and sits nearby whistling to get my attention and to see if I may have some spare seeds.
I did a blog about Kurrie the Pied Currawong earlier in November. Here he is with his fluffy feathers
And calling to the parent for some food
Lewins Honeyeaters are the boss of my besties garden. They love the Blue Salvia flowers
When I was walking around Grafton, I spied a Forest Kingfisher. Soon his mate joined him. It’s amazing the variety birds that are in town.
We wondered why the birds are skittish in my besties garden every now and then. I spied a Black-shouldered Kite on the other side of the valley.
With an abundance of Paperbark flowers, the Little Friarbird has a great selection to chose from.
A Black-faced Cuckoo Shrike was looking for a snack I think.
A Tawny Frogmouth was resting from its nocturnal hunting.
The Red-browed Firetail was wondering
1. If the water was too deep
2. If the water was too cold
3. If there were too many leaves in the bird bath
The Figbird kept a wary eye on my stalking through the garden.
The Eastern Yellow Robin after his bath. Bird baths are a great source for bird photos.
A seasonal visitor is the Leaden Flycatcher. The little bird hangs about for a week or so, chirping away and enjoying the garden
Join in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge with all the other photographers who have lots of K’s in their photos.
A King Parrot often drops in to see what’s happening on the verandah
Rainbow Lorikeets are here in numbers to feast on the nectar of the eucalypt blossoms
Musk Lorikeets only drop in every now and then
The Grey Goshawk frightens the chooks
This Australian Kestrel was hunting for lizards in a car park
A Fan-tailed Cuckoo kept an eye on me
Had to include a Chook

The little Forest Kingfisher is a brilliant flash of blue as he darts through the forest
Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos love pine cones and eat them like an ice cream cone
These Plumed Whistling Ducks were paddling about in a puddle in a football field
