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.

Just a butterfly

Bren’s Mid-Week Monochrome #54
Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Butterfly

I bet there’s some of you are saying…butterflies….I bet he won’t be able to contain himself. Yes you are right, my head is spinning at the thought of the hundreds of butterflies, tiny Line Blues, the same one from Monday Macro are everywhere in the garden at the moment…….also the 5GB of butterflies I have in my 22 butterfly folders.

But no, I shall contain myself as I am doing a double challenge. A Common Crow Butterfly on a Pentas flower.

Pump it up

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: #SquareUp

When this song first came out, I wasn’t all that keen but try not to dance, even if it’s in you chair being active for a moment or two….c’mon get your party started…..get your booty on the bus now….make my day

Speaking of being pumped up, look at the legs on this Teddy Bear Bee. I know………cute name for such a muscular bloke but they are quite OK at being who they are. They are a solitary bee is the Teddy Bear Bee, and they make their nest in the ground like other Australian native bees. On my blog there is always Blue-banded Bees somewhere.
