Thursdays Special: Pick a Word – March 2022

Lost in Translation’s Pick a Word – March 2022

Paula’s words for March may be a little difficult to convert to photos so a bit of thinking will be required.

OK that was a bit of a search to find photos as close to Paula’s words as I could

The battle for the Grevillea

The Ragtag daily Prompt Thursday: Pandemonium

Around this time every year pandemonium breaks out in the front yard.

For most of July the Blue-faced Honeyeaters are the boss of the Grevilleas, chasing all the smaller Honeyeaters – Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, Lewins Honeyeaters and the Eastern Spinebills, away from the flowers especially the Honey Gem Grevillea.

Then sometime in August, the Noisy Friarbirds arrive to set up camp, nesting and finding food. This leads to such a cacophony among the Grevilleas that one year I just had to record the Pandemonium. You will see that at times the Noisy Friarbird is carrying on and the Blue-faced Honeyeater doesn’t seem to care.

I hadn’t been using my camera for videos very much back then, so I apologise for the not so good video.

It’s in the eyes
