Well, thanks to Lisa’s post I now have another photo challenge on my list one that will be very easy for me and is close to my heart. Bung up a bird photo, link to IJ’s site and there you go.
First off I was being spied on as I was spying on an eastern Spinebill in a Firesticks Grevillea.
From Don’t Hold Your Breath “There aren’t many places on WordPress where bird watchers can share posts. If you post any photos of birds this week (starting today and up to next Monday), it would be great if you could leave a link in the comments, or a pingback, for others to follow. There is no compulsion to post a recent photo, but it would help others to know when and where you saw the bird.You might consider using the tag “Bird of the Week” in case people search for old posts using it.“
This is what happened one day a while ago. Has been a thought for a post for a while. Finding Denzils challenge of patterns in nature, these photos fit the bill. Well there’s only a small amount of variation but I hope you’ll enjoy having breakfast with a female Satin Bowerbird and later, a Blue-faced Honeyeater comes along.
“Oh wow, I just love these Grevillea flowers for breakfast even if I have to get on tip-toes”
“You just have to get those early morning drops of sweetness”
“If I can get right in, there are new drops of nectar just waiting for me”
“A few more licks here and then I’m done”
“But I really should look under here and have a good check, just in case”
“Better make sure there’s nothing left on the top either”
“Hey! That looks really sweet and juicy over there. Mind if I join you?”
“Not at all. You can have the flowers on that side of the tree”
“I’ll stay over here and show off my patterns to everyone, one last time”
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
