This is my first Mundane Monday Challenge.
This is my first Mundane Monday Challenge.
There isn’t many challenges that have the topic Birds. I couldn’t resist but who can stop at one or two especially when it is my favourite Australian bird the Eastern Yellow Robin. I did limit myself but they are so cute I just had to share a few photos.
I love how they just fly and land sideways on trees
and look around the corner to see if I am still there
Even fluffed up in the bird bath they still look captivating
The subtly of their yellow feathers shows through in the bird bath
Just a lovely little bird
This is one of his favourite resting spots
Hope you love the Eastern Yellow Robin as much as I do. See other peoples photos of birds in the Photo a Day Challenge: Birds
Here are a few water lillies for Cee’s Flower of the Day: Water Lily Pond
I love the subtle pink hue
The Cape Waterlily stands out among the crowd
The Yellow Waterlily is from Mexico
The Cape Waterlily is from South Africa and is everywhere in Australia
An Australian native waterlily the Water Snowflake. This one is growing on my dam.
I have put together some of my photos of birds for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge Collage
I was amazed that I only have a few Heron photos among my thousands of bird photos. The One Word Photo Challenge: Heron did set me a challenge. Luckily I found some White-faced Heron photos.
One afternoon I came home to find a White-faced Heron sitting in a tree in my garden.
At Shaws Bay while we were having a swim, a White-faced Heron was looking for snacks in the sand at low tide.
Who doesn’t love clouds. Sometimes we can see things, sometimes they are just clouds. This Weekly Weather photo challenge from Jennifer Nichole Wells is Clouds.
Here are some clouds I saw on the weekend.
This cloud formation reminded me of a birds wing feathers
A white line among the clouds
This cloud formation fascinated me
A while ago I saw this cloud which looks like a bear or a dog
I must do a warning before you start perusing this blog – it does contain sex

Now for the saucy part

Dragonflies doing it on the dam
A couple of moths transfixed in the cactus garden
I couldn’t let a blog on insects go without sneaking in a “not really an insect” my beautiful Huntsman Spider who lives in my place. She is now somewhere in the laundry where, I think, she may be hibernating, if spiders do that sort of thing.
The Tuesday photo challenge from Dutch goes the Photo is Bugs. I have so many bug photos I just had to stop or it would take me for ages to complete the photo challenge!!!
Here is a selection of my bugs. I don’t know the names of all of these so I will leave it up to you to identify the ones you know.
The Centipede who walked through my house.
The Plant Hopper who wouldn’t sit still for a photo in the kitchen
The Praying Mantis on the kitchen window
The Fly with a yellow face
The Fly with the green eyes and biting proboscis
The “birth” of a Cicada on the chook yard fence
The Tiger Cicada on a tree
The Bullants coming to defend the nest
A Beetle on a leaf
An insect marching with purpose across a leaf
A bright red insect on my car
A Mayfly on the wall
An insect stopping for a photo op
Have a search around my blog for lots more insect photos if you want
For this week’s Black and White Sunday photo challenge, Paula is hoping to see some photos from a low lying perspective. I always am getting down to get “that photo” especially of Fungi. I have a number of blogs just on fungi. Looking at the photos in black and white is different. What do you think?
Have a look at Lost in Translation to see more Lying Low photos
I took this photo last weekend and after looking at it I decided it was a good Odd Ball for Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge: July 2, 2017
