Not having a bath….why did you wake me up?

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.

Pick-a-Word 30 August

I am glad that Ann-Christine has prompted Paula to get back into the Pick a Word Challenge which is one of my favourite photo challenges. So let’s get started with this Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #112 Pick-a-Word

Here are the five words selected and my interpretation of the word prompts

Comfortable

Growing

Tangled

Crowded

Exuberant

Drama

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Drama

Where is the
drama?
is it
in the flowers?

Is it
in the air?
always a drama
somewhere

Perhaps a drama
on a post
drama
trivial to most

Not just
the birds
where a drama
resides

Oh the drama
where would we
be
without a drama

A quarrel

Debbie from Travel With Intents quotation inspired image

At first I was unsure of what I could find to satisfy Debbies quote of  of William Ralph Inge
“It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favour of vegetarianism while the wolf remains of a different opinion.”  William Ralph Inge, “Patriotism”, in Outspoken Essays (1919)

I am sure I had a image of Sheep somewhere but alas I have no idea where they are. They would have not been as good as Debbies Sheep anyway!! Also a Wolf image would be good, but no Wolves in the wild to be found in Australia.

So I decided to dig a bit further as the quote inspired me to look at more from William Ralph Inge This is what I found which made it much easier for me to supply an image to match more of the quote. I know Debbie this is a bit of a cheat. Also I have added more than one image.

“It takes in reality only one to make a quarrel. It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favour of vegetarianism, while the wolf remains of a different opinion.” William Ralph Inge — 1919  Outspoken Essays (first series),’Patriotism’.
