Last month things seemed to have cooled off a bit but there were a couple of new bloggers who discovered Last on the Card from others posts and posted their photos. Sometimes I wonder if this photo challenge has run it’s time? Oh well lets get on with your wonderful and perhaps not so wonderful photos. As you can see from mine that this May I managed to get a few crap photos for my Last Photos. I am not precious about showing my duds and hope you can do the same.
So let’s see what you have for May 2022
The rules are simple: 1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 31st May. 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”
Sometimes I get in the mood to try something else with my photos. I had a random pick of a photo and decided, nah that’s too hard, so went to an image I liked and did a few changes. I didn’t do a collage like Bren’s fabulous image, just a bit of editing.
What do you think of my Eastern Spinebill and the Grevillea flower?
The Lens-Artists want to know what is magical for me. I love finding something new and getting the best photo I can to share with everyone. The comments are quite magical too. Here is a selection of the magical way my eye converts what I see into an image for you.
I was doing a bit of building work on the shed yesterday. In the afternoon I decided to have a break and was sitting on the step when there was a flash through the garden and onto the hibiscus. I was used to seeing Yellow-faced Honeyeaters getting a snack from the last red flowers. This time it was a smaller different coloured bird. Then all of a sudden other birds came swooping through the garden.
Here is just almost a half hour in the garden.
The Peaceful Doves are always around. They are small and can get through the wire around the chooks yard and house. They always have a supply of food.
Of course this isn’t in the garden. The dam is quite low so I was surprised to see three Pacific Black Ducks swimming around
Out front, this Grevillea is flowering. The Eastern Spinebill loves coming in to get the nectar. Sometimes they like to hover like Hummingbirds while their bill is in the flowers
Every Winter there is a small flock of Yellow-faced Honeyeaters who stay at my place.
Eastern Yellow Robins are always around. When the heat of Summer is on, they spend more time in the gullies that surround the house. Yesterday there was two Robins who chased each other around the garden
This is the visitor I have been waiting for, that first flash though the garden. Every year the little lovely Rose Robins arrive to add that splash of colour to the Winter garden.
I hope you enjoyed a quick half-hour in my garden with me.
