The word prompt from Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Close up or Macro
Isn’t funny how some of the photo challenges come up at the same time. This is great ‘cos I can add a few more macro shots. I didn’t want to over load the last post.

The word prompt for the photo challenge from Leanne Cole: Flowers
The Brunsfelsia are flowering and this little grasshopper is enjoying the sun
I could go on and on with Grevillea flowers but here is just a couple. A new planting from a few years ago has a lovely pink flower.
A standard Grevillea, Robin Gordon, is one the birds love.
The Hippeastrums are in flower and are a delight of colour scattered about the garden.

The Stingless Native Bees love gathering the pollen from the Hippeastrums
In a pot at the front verandah, a Native Frangipanni’s scent drifts into the house. The flowers start as white and as the get older become yellow.

From a hard shell, a Cicada changing into the sounds of Summer in the Australian bush
A Cicada pull and twists
To start a new life above ground
Now a winged wonder
Leaving behind an empty shell
A bit of Aussie music from the 80’s

My twenty-fourth photo for Becky’s square photo challenge: In the Pink
The Camellia flower with a bonus ant photobomb
If you want to join in here are a few ideas from Becky.
The theme for squares this month is ‘In the Pink‘ and the one rule as always is that your main photograph must be square. After that the world is your oyster, or should I say flamingo?! To help you get started here are some ideas you might want to consider;
- ‘In the Pink’ – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!
- ‘Tickled Pink‘ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.
- Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink
- 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?
Squares is a daily challenge, so your photographs can be from the archives or brand new. Don’t forget though to keep your photo square, and to pingback with #InthePink.
