…..Jez getting better and back onto our screens with his challenges and fabulous photos
Jez’s Fan Of…..#65
Jez’s fan of…… is blue sky backdrop. I must admit I am a fan of blue skies as well
Always good to get that outline of a building
A Black Kite flying is best against a blue sky
Our Moon in the day is wonderful with blue instead of black
Just a hint of blue sky for a contrast
Small so the blue sky is big
Airplanes are always winging off into the far blue yonder
Soaring Ibis wheeling about a blue sky
A bit of contrast for a Hibiscus flower to stand out
The next blue sky is a spider for those who just can’t, but zoom past for a great Aussie song
OK here comes the unusual yes it’s a Golden Orb Weaver Spider
This week Jez’s Fan of is Rivers
Upstream the river show signs of peaceful tranquility
Near my place, the Clarence River flows serenely under the bridge
Occasionally the river turns into a raging tumult
The bridge disappears for weeks and sometimes a month or more
Returning once more to a steady flow giving life to all along its path
In town the boats await their owners
and finally to the delta to wait until the morning
or head out to sea to bring in the nights catch at dawn
Jez’s Fan of #60…..Dragonflies
As you may recall, on the weekend we had a picnic by the Clarence River. While relaxing in the shade on a rather warm March day, dragonflies seemed to be flitting about everywhere, whether near the water or right beside us on the grass.
Ready for a bit of Dragonfly action?
So many of the blue coloured dragonflies
Red dragonflies are easy to spot
First time I have seen a black dragonfly with a blue tail
This yellow dragonfly landed and did a series of poses and flitted off
A ring-in. I found this wonderful dragonfly at Rocky Creek Dam
Another ring in from Rocky Creek Dam, a blue Damselfly
Jez’s Fan of…..#59
I am a fan of Butterflies but who isn’t?
There has been many many butterflies around my garden for quite a while. The Lemon Migrants were here in numbers for almost eight weeks and even now there are a few still here. There are some I haven’t managed to get a photo of in the past few weeks, little Line Blues, a white and black one who is too fast, perhaps a Yellow Albatross and other small butterflies who don’t sit for long.
Here is the butterflies I have managed to photograph. I hope you enjoy the butterflies of Durranbah.
Orchard Swallowtails like Pentas flowers
This Common Crow was intent of hanging around on the verandah plants
Lemon Migrants enjoyed Pentas flowers when the Cassia flowers started to wane
A Large Yellow was easy to capture. The Small Grass Yellows are just too fast.
A Lesser Wanderer dropped by for a while
The Northern or Scarlet Jezebel was happy to pose with the Pentas flowers too
Also Ragtag Daily Prompt Monday: Delightful
Jez’s I’m a Fan of… #57 – Water Droplets
So am I Jez. Today was the perfect afternoon. A shower of rain left behind water drops. Yes I practiced restraint.
