The Bird Weekly Photo Challenge: Birds in Black and White

I thought I had already contributed to Lisa’s photo challenge and looking through my posts I can see that I have written quite a number of posts with a similar theme. I will have to dig into the archives for this one so sorry if you have seen some of these before

Here’s a short song that I discovered many many years ago. I hope you can enjoy it as much as I do.

Rather special

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #139: Special Moments

A few special moments to share.

A Wanderer Butterfly coming to rest on my besties hand for a while

Having help when I really needed it while working under my car

Having chickens hatch

Having a critically endangered Regent Honeyeater visit my garden

Taking a super bad photo of a very shy and almost rare (in my area) Regent Bowerbird. One quick photo and it was gone.

Having a Eastern Yellow Robin come and sit on the back of a chair while you are having a bite to eat in the garden. He came around often at my besties old place. We called him Bobbin

Finding a Nobbi Lizard at one of my favourite places, the Raspberry Lookout, after the fires of the Summer of 2019

Discovering a Hakea flurolenta on my place for the first time. I haven’t seen it since those fires but hope it may return in time.

Discovering the delights of Paris and Venice for the first time

Venice

A favourite yellow

Jude’s Life in Colour: Yellow
Bird Weekly Photo Challenge – Birds You Love

Another double up for photo challenges. Some may have noticed I’ve not been around for a short while so I have a bit of a catch-up going on. I will be doing a few more yellow post as Jude’s photo challenge is for the month so here is a teaser of what could be coming. I have decided just to just do one bird for Lisa’s Bird Weekly Photo Challenge as I would be here forever trying to decide which ones to post. If you have a favourite bird that I may have a photo of, give me a shout in the comments and I might just do one more favourite bird post.

So which bird did I pick? I am sure a lot of you will know that one of the cutest birds that I have at my place is the Eastern Yellow Robin. I can’t just decide on one photo so perhaps a gallery of this darling bird. Some may remember the robin from my besties place, Bobbin, who will be in here somewhere. perhaps more than once!

Here’s a tune while you have look at the Eastern Yellow Robin.

To be mellow it’s gotta be……

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Monday: Mellow

What else can I play but this while you have a quick look if you have time.

Which photo took your fancy? Was I mellow enough for the prompt or a bit too yellow. Oh, almost forgot this one. Can you pick why I wanted this photo is included?

Colour change

The Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Two Ways

Just a couple of example. I can’t get the fancy image compare as I don’t have the right thingamagig. So put up with some old fashioned two ways. Some Begonia leaves and the fabulous Eastern Yellow Robin.
