I just had to do another blog for Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge: Pink
The Pink Euodia, an Australian native tree in my garden, attracts birds when the beautiful flowers are blooming.
Here is a Rainbow Lorikeet enjoying the flowers
The delightful Scarlet Honeyeater loves the pink blossoms
Frank has chosen Pink as the theme for the Tuesday Photo Challenge. I was going to recycle the paint can but I thought I must have some other pink here somewhere, other than flowers.
I took this photo with an old camera as I wasn’t too sure about taking my best camera aboard the yacht. We were leading the final race home after about 10 days of sailing from Grafton to Iluka on the Clarence River. Suddenly a breeze blew up and all the larger yachts put their spinnakers up and came zooming up behind us. It looked great from our little boat. Unfortunately the wind died and everyone was becalmed so the race was cancelled.
Don’t the yachts look great with their coloured sails?
The Tuesday Photo Challenge from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Alley
I have gone back in time to my first European tour and to the city of Rovinj in Croatia. It was hard to settle on a couple of photos as I have quite a few alley photos from Europe. I like these ones.
This alley was just up from my hotel. It has just the right amount of colour to lighten the mood of the alley.
This is one of my favourite photos of Rovinj
I couldn’t resist posting some more insects in Dutch goes the Photo‘s Tuesday photo challenge as lots of people have enjoyed my previous post Bugs.
I must do a warning before you start perusing this blog – it does contain sex
Here is a Cricket in a Crinum
The wonderful dragonfly doing a hand..errrr….leg stand on the water plant seed head

I couldn’t let a blog on insects go without sneaking in a “not really an insect” my beautiful Huntsman Spider who lives in my place. She is now somewhere in the laundry where, I think, she may be hibernating, if spiders do that sort of thing.
The Tuesday photo challenge from Dutch goes the Photo is Bugs. I have so many bug photos I just had to stop or it would take me for ages to complete the photo challenge!!!
Here is a selection of my bugs. I don’t know the names of all of these so I will leave it up to you to identify the ones you know.
The Centipede who walked through my house.
The Plant Hopper who wouldn’t sit still for a photo in the kitchen
The Praying Mantis on the kitchen window
The Fly with a yellow face
The Fly with the green eyes and biting proboscis
The “birth” of a Cicada on the chook yard fence
The Tiger Cicada on a tree
The Bullants coming to defend the nest
A Beetle on a leaf

Have a search around my blog for lots more insect photos if you want
Week 61 of Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge. This topic is Unusual. I have many unusual fungi growing on my place, but the Finger Fungi are quite unusual.
This is what happens in my street…..or road actually. I liked the prompt from Dutch Goes The Photo as my street isn’t like anyone elses street, OK perhaps a few.
This is what can happen in my street. Occasionally some of the farmers in my area need to move cattle from one place to another. This time it was a rural event called a Camp Draft where riders try to move cattle in a set pattern.
Here is My Street
As I came out of my driveway, this is what I saw down the road.
Sending the cattle through the gate.
The horse wondered what I was doing also making sure I got its best side.
The dog was working hard.
