The colours of flowers

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: December Alphabet Starts with R
Life in Colour December: Kaleidoscope

A few “R” flowers and some other colours. Like Cee, I love taking photos of flowers so it was hard for me to limit myself.

Strolling down the drive

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Four Colours or More

A Common Bronzewing I saw looking for snacks on my drive. The image quality is a bit poor as this is another photo through the kitchen window on almost full telephoto.

The actual wing photo would have made a great Last on the Card for December 2021 which will be out on the first of January.

Life in Colour December: Kaleidoscope

A while ago I went to a virtual afternoon tea with the lovely Su from New Zealand and others. I promised that I was going to bring Fairy Bread; a lot of people didn’t know what Fairy Bread was but it is a kaleidoscope of colour. Have you heard of Fairy Bread?

Fresh yummy bread, my home made is the best, spread butter and sprinkle Hundreds and Thousands for an extreme sugar hit. A big attraction at kids parties.

A riot of colour


Life in Colour December: Kaleidoscope

Jude has picked”The world is a kaleidoscope¹ of colour so this month let’s celebrate that with the brightest / most colourful images you can find.

¹(Something that is made up of a lot of different and frequently changing colours or elements)

So we are off for December. This month may be easy……..maybe.
I just had to get out the Hypnoplate for my first Kaleidoscope of Colour

Bonus black time

Life in Colour November Colour: Black/Grey

This week Jude is asking “DO YOU HAVE ANY BLACK BIRDS?” I probably do.

Australian Raven – Black Swan – Spangled Drongo
White-winged Choughs – Sooty Oystercatcher – Common Darter
Being ignored by a Cormorant

AS this is probably my last November challenge post I have been thinking of the Black-faced Cuckoo Shrike, a bird who fulfills both non-colours for this months challenge.

Life in Colour November: Black/Grey

This one is right above my house

On the way home when every thing changed with a yellow hue

Storms at sea can look dramatic

The Moon shining through the clouds one morning

They are all naturally grey

Jude has asked “What Greys in nature do you have to share?” I think you may have sent a loaded question Jude

The front and the rear (not the best sorry) of a Grey Fantail and then onto a few more

Peaceful Dove – Grey Goshawk – Grey Crowned Babbler
Little Friarbird – Common Brushtail Possum – Black-faced Cuckoo Shrike
Koala – Grey-shrike Thrush Spotted Gum
Ibis Feathers Old tree – Granite Boulders –
Line-blue Butterfly – Crested Tern

Grey skies and trees

Life in Colour November colour: Black

Thought I would start with something simple as Jude has said –

“This month we will be looking for Black or Grey. Black is not a colour at all. Theoretically it is the absence of all colour. Yet black is distinctive. Lines are bolder, shadows deeper, colours brighter against a black background.”
