Random things with colour

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Coat of Many Colours

Not many coats here but at least it’s colourful

How many reds

Life in Colour August: Red

This is my look at photos from the first “red” (it took a while to work out the easiest way to search for an image – duh!) to the last one posted probably last week, as it’s the end of the month already. My way of saying goodbye to red and hello to ????

The first RED – a Red-necked Wallaby and Joey in March 2012 in my messy looking front yard

March 2012 – RED fungi make an appearance

September 2013 – RED-browed Firetail Finch dropped in for a bath

January 2014 – A random RED flower

February 2015 – A wonderful scented RED Rose

August 2016 – A favourite RED Skimmer Dragonfly photo

March 2017 – lot’s of RED-necked Wallaby photos to choose from

July 2017 – RED Skimmer Dragonflies were keeping an eye on me too

January 2018 – My computer time was interrupted by a RED insect walking across my desk. Assassin Bugs are so cool; see the red hook in the front, they use that to hold their lunch and quietly munch away. Also comes with spiky defenses and camouflage of sort. Size – around 10-30mm If unfortunately stung just a bit of localised pain that doesn’t last long. Remember never poke the insect

November 2018 – One of my favourite RED Dahlia photos

August 2019 – I love RED and yellow Torch Ginger Flowers. They are a haven for small insects.

July 2019 – I love my wheelbarrows filled with RED Hippeastrums

November 2019 – I am getting cuttings of this RED Frangipanni.

November 2019 – This reminds me. It’ll be soon time for Becky’s next #square photo challenge – 33 days. This one was from a Blue or was it RED square photo challenge? This also works for the next Square photo challenge in “October – is going to be a month of Past Squares. A month to share memories, personal favourites, leftover squares and also have fun with themes you have always wanted to try.”

December 2019 – RED Christmas fireworks

June 2020 – another new visitor to the garden in the six months after that fire. The bush was recovering and just around my house was a garden and sanctuary, so the small birds I used to see in the bush but not around the house came around more often like this little RED-backed Wren

September 2020 – A good year for the Zygote Cactus to show their RED flower

April 2021 – the end of a particularly warm Autumn day…

….and this final RED adventure. The Header from April 2021 – RED Callistemon (Bottlebrush) and a Scarlet Jezebel Butterfly

A Red Fantasy

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red
Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge: Fantasy

A chance to combine two photo challenges.
What can be more colourful and take you into a fantasy world than the Lismore Lantern Parade.

The lanterns come by eliciting ohhhhs and ahhhs from the crowd.
