The weekly inspired quotation from Debbie at Travel With Intent
“Travelling is like flirting with life. It’s like saying, ‘I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station” Lisa St Aubin de Teran
I hope the train can stop, this is my station
Sunshine’s Macro Monday #18
I was going around the garden filling the various bird baths and I spotted these flies doing what flies do. I like how the male was checking me out while he was “occupied” and the female was nonplussed either way.
Terri’s Sunday Stills: #Calm Before the Storm
You can just make out the horses and cows who have moved into the old dairy as a storm approaches
The storm clouds are building over my home
The afternoon is calm
The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #72: Waiting
What was that that flashed past the kitchen window? A flash of white. Quick………grab the camera and outside into the garden.
Yes……it’s a Caper White Butterfly coming to feed on the Pentas flowers.
Get set……..focus…….wait for that butterfly in flight photo opportunity…..wait and wait
It’s a flutter of wings……….will she fly this time…….or just reposition to get more nectar
Don’t get distracted……….ohhh look……..a dragonfly
Oh bugger…….she’s off this bunch of flowers…….where will she settle next?
Look…….over there……quick get focused as she is fluttering her wings again….maybe this time she will fly
Hurrah…….success…..it did take a bit of time waiting
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Yellow
Lemon Migrant Butterfly always a treat to see
An Australian Native flower that grows on my place. I know I shouldn’t be slack and tell you it’s name
So lovely but is a quick spreading introduced weed in Australia – Singapore Daisy
Another unknown name for an Australian Native plant that is on my place possibly a variety of Guinea flower
The Grevillea Yamba Sunshine
Yellow-faced Honeyeaters love Grevilleas as well as Bottlebrush flowers
Couldn’t do a yellow post without a Yellow Robin popping in
Time for Sunshine’s Macro Monday
I though today was appropriate to post a Poppy flower. Photo taken in my recent trip to Tasmania

I wasn’t sure if I would contribute to this challenge but A-C changed my mind. I am going to use some old photos if that’s OK?
Time for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday
I am sorry for bombarding you with fire stuff but it’s my life at the moment.
I was in town when the atmosphere turned a different shade than I am used to seeing which gave my world an eerie glow.
Looking across the Clarence River at the Jacaranda trees which usually stand out in the landscape
Looking upstream towards the Great Dividing Range where you see mountains. My place is in there somewhere
The reflection of the sun on the water which was being whipped up by a very strong wind. There was even small waves on the river
