This selection of photos range from 2014 to 2017. Perhaps you may have seen the before. Some are favourites I re-do for challenges and some you may have not seen before.
Yes there maybe a snake involved so perhaps I’ll make it into a slideshow so those who find nature not to there liking can skip past.

This is my first contribution to this challenge. I haven’t had much loveliness in my life with the floods and rain over the past week. I have been able to get out into the garden and have found a bit of respite with my camera. Here is a bit of what I have found.
Some insects like a Dragonfly who seemed to follow me in the garden
A poor old Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly on a Pentas flower. She has seen better days. I used this angle so you couldn’t see how ratty her wings were at the rear
A Brown Ringlet Butterfly was resting on a leaf in the brief morning sun
The Wanderer Butterfly preferred the Bauhinia flowers
and not an insect but one of the smallest Honeyeater, a female Scarlet Honeyeater. This is the second mass flowering of the Bottlebrush tree bring so many birds into the garden.
There are two flags that I feel are representative of Australia. The first is the official flag that get flown around the country that shows the wonderful constellation, the Southern Cross and our historic ties to Great Britain. The second is the flag that recognises our First Nations people, which also gets flown on Government buildings and other locations.
So there is the Red, White and Blue
Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey and a red bucket I put out with water after those horrid fires in December 2019
Blue Skimmer Dragonfly
The Red Black and Yellow of the Indigenous Flag. The Aboriginal Flag is divided horizontally into equal halves of black (top) and red (bottom), with a yellow circle in the centre. The black symbolises Aboriginal people. The yellow represents the sun, the constant re-newer of life. Red depicts the earth and peoples’ relationship to the land.
