Walking Square #1

Becky’s #WalkingSquares

I had things to do at home today plus the blokes who do vegetation management under the power lines, were here mulching all of the mainly wattles that sprung up under the power line in their thousands since that fire. Wattle seeds are germinated by fire as they are a pioneer species to start the recovery. I didn’t look what was under the wattles as I knew it was going to be mulched anyway. I can now keep the area clear as one of my fire breaks. In the other paddock I managed to get some White Dogwood shrubs saved. I’ll try and collect seeds and grow them in other places. Therefor my first #WalkingSquares is just walking at home.

Here is the Walking Squares song for post #1.

What I want to share is while looking at a shrub getting samples to try and do an identification, I saw a very small Crab Spider catch a fly. The spider sure managed to swallow a fair bit before I disturbed dinner. I am sorry my spiderphobe followers but this bloke is so small and cute, smaller than your little finger nail. What is coming next show a bit more detail

Look at that face complete with a bit of fly hanging out of it’s mouth. All the eyes were on me that’s for sure

It’s great to have our Becky back with the wonderful photo #Squares challenge. Remember that your #WalkingSquares photo must be square Have fun because I know I will

It’s the cats whiskers – again

After the response to my Mid-Week Monochrome post yesterday, I thought I would show you what a Cat’s Whiskers flower looks like in colour.
