This afternoon and tonight

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Connects you to the present moment

Photo taken as the sun was setting this afternoon

This photo was taken about ten minutes ago. I love being able to see the craters on Our Moon

Our Moon connects us all. No matter where we live on this planet, our Moon connects us. We all see the same moon albeit from a different axis. This moon also connects us to our ancestors who also saw the same moon. Go outside and look at Our Moon and think of me also looking at the same time, feeling a cosmic thread that connects us all.

I am a Child of the Moon

This is very different Rolling Stones sound from the psychedelic are of 60’s music

Letting you into my groove

The Lens-Artists Challenge #211: What’s Your Photographic Groove

What’s my photographic groove? I don’t have one particular theme except for showcasing the flora and fauna of Australian and quite often from my place.

The native bees here are lovely bees, they don’t sting and are small. The Blue-banded bee and the Teddy Bear Bees are favourites.

The wonderful birds are probably my all time favourite things to photograph. All of these are from my place except for the Golden-headed Cisticola on the barbed wire fence.

I love to have butterflies in my garden. The Blue Triangle Butterfly was one that was never here. When I first saw one many years ago, I made it one of my photographic quests to get a photo, which took a while as they are very shy butterflies. I finally managed to get one. The photo here. A few years later, they turned up in my garden

Of course I have to include the animals which are unique to Australia. I did have Koalas who used my place a s trail to get from one area to another. I never saw any but could here there calls at night. Since the fires of 2019, I haven’t seen or heard any. I did often see Dingoes or heard them calling in the night. Again they have disappeared from the landscape. I always have Red-necked Wallabies in the garden but they too are in reduced numbers. The big Eastern Grey Kangaroos used to travel through the bottom of my place where the bush isn’t as thick but never around the house. There are always Brush-tailed Possums as well.

I could not go without leaving a few native flowers, Bottlebrush, a Purple Fringe Lily, a Paperbark flower and Eucalypt flowers with a Brown Honeyeater atop.

I hope it was fun peeking into bushboys world

Last on the Card – July 2022

Last Photo for July 2022

How wonderful to have thirty-nine people show us their last photos for June 2022. I don’t look at stats often any more but was intrigued to see about June as I was a bit down last month. Apart from the fabulous thirty-nine, there was ninety-one likes and an amazing 292 views. I don’t understand that bot WP stats have always confused me. Lastly, I’d like to thank everyone for cheering me up with their kind words and posts.

Like a lot of people I forget and am surprised at what was the last photo on the four devices I use to take photos. I went from –

  • things
  • to a new leaf
  • to too far away
  • early morning fuzzy

So let’s see what you have for July 2022

The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 31st July.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Tag “The Last Photo”
