Bonus black time

Life in Colour November Colour: Black/Grey

This week Jude is asking “DO YOU HAVE ANY┬áBLACK┬áBIRDS?” I probably do.

Australian Raven – Black Swan – Spangled Drongo
White-winged Choughs – Sooty Oystercatcher – Common Darter

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.

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

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.”

In the garden now

Life in Colour October: Orange

So many Orange Hippeastrums or are they Amaryillis? in my garden now. This year they outshone the red Hippeastrums.

and the Native Stingless Bees love them too

The forgotten flower

Life in Colour October: Orange

I made comment on Jude’s post where she asked “Do you have any Orange Flowers?” I replied that I think I have posted all of my Orange Flowers. Then I wondered if I had an Orange Trumpet in a post.

So here is the Orange Trumpet Flower as promised Jude. This one grows over my potting shed.

oh yes I also forgot the Lions Tails. These ones come with a bonus orange bee
