Finding colours

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Rainbow Colours (More Than 4 Colours)

In the garden this week

Xingfumama’s Whatsoever is Lovely Challenge 2022 Week 9

This is my first contribution to this challenge. I haven’t had much loveliness in my life with the floods and rain over the past week. I have been able to get out into the garden and have found a bit of respite with my camera. Here is a bit of what I have found.

Some insects like a Dragonfly who seemed to follow me in the garden

A poor old Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly on a Pentas flower. She has seen better days. I used this angle so you couldn’t see how ratty her wings were at the rear

A Brown Ringlet Butterfly was resting on a leaf in the brief morning sun

The Wanderer Butterfly preferred the Bauhinia flowers

and not an insect but one of the smallest Honeyeater, a female Scarlet Honeyeater. This is the second mass flowering of the Bottlebrush tree bring so many birds into the garden.

I see things that fly

Lost in Translation’s Pick a Word: April 2021

Paula’s words for us to match an image are –

FURRY

A furry donkey says hello


PICTURESQUE

My favourite spot to sit in the mountains near my place


RAPID

It’s hard to capture the beating wings of an Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly as they are rarely still, even when having a drink


SUBTERRANEAN

Beneath the Arena di Verona


APOCALYPTIC

My favourite spot on my place after the devastating fires of December 2019. This waterhole never dries and is a haven for birds and animals. A big job to clear the fallen trees. I went there yesterday and the bush around is recovering and there were so many birds but the tangle of trees still remains.

It’s in the sky

A bit of a flying song to begin.
