Sunshines Macro Monday – 5
I am keeping with my plant theme for a bit longer – flower, leaf, bark (with a spiders web) and water drops. So now a Stingless Native Bee. These bees are about 5mm in size so just perfect for Macro Monday. I think the pollen sacks are full
Terri’s Sunday Stills this week is Mellow #Yellow
Just lots of yellow
The flowers – most are native flowers from my place
Flowers from elsewhere
Subtle yellow with a bonus grasshopper in my garden
Yellow-faced Honeyeaters are always around the garden
Tiny pom pom native flowers that are in abundance here
Small Grass Yellow Butterflies are special
What would yellow be if I didn’t include Bobbin, the Eastern Yellow Robin
This months square challenge from Becky: Blue
The theme for July is ‘blue‘, and as always it is totally up to you how you interpret the square theme but here are Beckys suggestions for how we might stay connected on our square adventures this month.
- be a ‘Bolt from the Blue’ – something unexpected or surprising
- explore ‘Into the wide blue yonder‘ – sky, sea or maybe a location that is appealingly unknown and mysterious
- simply be ‘Blue‘ – whether that’s azure, cobalt, sapphire, cerulean, navy, ultramarine, indigo, or turquoise
- and there is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?
Whatever you decide to do, please remember there is a rule if you want to part of the Square Gang and be sure your squares make into the gallery.
I found this little bloke when splitting the firewood. Actually I found him in the wheelbarrow as I was taking the wood inside. Yes it is a scorpion. A small Australian Native Scorpion a Rainforest Scorpion, Hormurus waigiensis I think. It is about 5cm long. Despite it’s reputation of its cousins, the Australian Scorpionaren’t poisonous (I know lets down the reputation of Australia being a deadly place lol) Even if stings do occur, these are usually just a painful irritation, because none of our known scorpions have fatal venom.
It also helped that once the tray of the wheelbarrow was blue.
Another Aussie music, this time some blues
It’s their one year anniversary so congratulations to Tina Amy Ann-Christine and Patti
There has been some suggestions for the topics to post so I am just going to go with things I enjoy photographing which I have found brings other photographers into my life who I like to refer to as my blog family. Those who comment to say what they like and offer suggestions but in all everyone is positive in their outlook, photos and friendship as well. No words of explanation as I said to a fellow blogger who said captions help, I like you to interpret my photos as you see them. Some of these have bought smiles to faces which is something I find is the reaction closest to my heart. Ready? Let’s go……….
And a rose for each of the Fab Four
Thank you and good night
