The many shades of amber

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge January: Amber Colours

I wasn’t aware of the different shades of amber there were until I saw Cee’s amber swatch. I hope I didn’t too far away from amber too far.

I put them in a slideshow to save you scrolling.

Here is Ambers song

A few finds down the road

Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Lichen

On a bit of a stroll a while ago, I came across a few interesting lichens. This ball like lichen caught my eye

This one is quite common around here

Couldn’t help but to include a tiny fungi among the burnt sticks and leaves

Rough fun with fungi

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Texture

This old wood fungus, I think called a Shelf Fungus, that grows on the trunks of dead trees assisting in the decaying process.

Everyone knows about Puff-ball Fungus. Puffballs are a type of fungus that is ball-shaped that bursts on impact, releasing a cloud of dust-like spores when mature.

Agaricus augustus also called The Prince mushroom. It has lovely pink gills underneath

The Graceful Parasol, Macrolepiota clelandii

This one is mainly found in pot plants. Often called a Plantpot Dapperling

How did I go this month?

Around here

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Walk 50 steps or less and take a new photo(s)

I walked out of my front door. I have a few ways to walk fifty steps so I made the decision to go up both directions of the driveway. First I went up the left hand side driveway. I didn’t know what I would find and luckily there were these wood fungi.

Fifty steps up the right hand side of the driveway are Grevilleas which are in flower

Opposite the Grevillea flowers are the Ivory Curl trees and they have finished flowering but now they have these lovely seed pods

Going down the path towards the back of my house is the shade house and my Begonias are flowering

I think found some apricot colours

Terri’s Sunday Stills Monthly Colour Challenge: All About #Apricot

I wasn’t sure if I had any apricot images. They all seem either too orange or yellow to me. Of course they are mainly flowers.

Re-living the Past #22 – going back to 2013

Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Review (2)

There were happy puppy kites

Stingless Native Bee all 5mm of her zooming past a Hibiscus flower. This plant was a cutting from my Mum’s garden.

A Gold-tailed Spiny Ant having a drink in a water drop on the verandah. I call them Gold Bum Ants until I learnt their real name

Looking under a mushroom

First time I found some freaky looking Finger Fungus

Of course there were flowers

There seemed to be pink flowers then

The first appearance on my drift wood Stick Man walking along the beach. The start of fun creations with things on the beach by my bestie and me

Shells photos were a fun post

Insects on flowers or insects in general were the beginnings of macro photography

Butterflies and Honey Gem Grevillea flowers became a favourite

As did birds who enjoyed the flowers nectar like this Blue-faced Honeyeater

Birds at the bird bath made easy to take photos. Golden Whistlers and others always stopped in for a drink or a bath

Everyone loved the Long-necked Tortoise sunning on the almost tortoise shaped rock

Here is my Rooster. He was the one who helped start me on my addiction to photo challenges, thanks to Yvette from Priorhouse who was looking for some feather photos

Of course there was a few Red-necked Wallaby photos, taken from my kitchen window, especially the cute Joeys.

One my way home from work in town, I sometimes stopped when the sunset looked amazing just a few kilometres from my place

My first sunset photo I posted. Can you spot on the mountains where the sun was setting from the previous photo?
