Who? Me?

The Ragtag Saturday word prompt: Fabulist

What I love about a lot of photo challenges (or writing stories, poems etc) is the words that I have never heard of that suddenly set my mind to a photo. What is a Fabulist you ask?

adjective:
noun
plural: fabulists

  1. a person who composes or relates fables.
  2. a liar, especially a person who invents elaborate, dishonest stories.

Can I have a photo that conveys a story for the word?

What? Who? Me? I’m not doing anything. I won’t eat your shrub. I am just stretching my arm. Perhaps practicing my moves for playing Double Bass in the forest orchestra. Go on Joey, you tell him, I am a good Mum.

Having a Peek

The Daily Post word Prompt: Peek

Usually from the front of my house, either on the verandah or from kitchen window, I am able to get a few photos of Red-necked Wallabies grazing and hopping around my garden. Quite often there is someone taking a peek.

Always on guard

No matter how you are in the pouch, there’s always time to peek out.

“Hey Mum, what’s the bloke over there doing?”

A quick peek to see what’s going on

Tender

The one word prompt from the Daily Post: Tender

What could be more tender than the love of a mother and her baby or in this case the love of a Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey. This encounter was in my garden.

“Hey Mum, I have an itch I can’t reach.”

170609_blog challenge_tender_wallabies04

“Here, I’ll take care of that darned itch.”
170609_blog challenge_tender_wallabies03

“Is that better?”

“Thanks Mum.”
