The theme from Nancy this week: Ready, Set, Action
When an eastern Whipbird decides it is bath time it is all ready, set, action!
It’s bath time so I better get in there
I may look bedraggled, but I feel great
Oh damn……..I forgot to wash my feet
Well in I go again
Gracious me……not quite clean enough.
In I go. Ready, set……..
Ahhh. It’s really nice in here. Want to join me?
I might just soak for a while
The word prompt from Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Water
Why do I say the faces of water?
Water can have a calm face to look at for ages.
The calm face of the gentle ripple of waves at sunrise
The raging face of floodwaters pounding down the river
The reflective face of water lapping at the hulls of boats
The lonely face hanging from a thread of web
and sometimes the water actually shows its’ face
The word prompt from Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Neglected
The word prompt from Nancy: Quintessential
To many people, the Kangaroo is quintessentially Australian. They are everywhere. I think the last count there were 50 million Kangaroos in Australia.
This bloke is an Eastern Grey Kangaroo. Kangaroos can be quite temperamental and will attack, sitting back on that huge tail and kick out with their powerful legs which have long nails on their feet. When the fight each other, the aim is to disembowel the other roo with powerful kicks.
But what about the cute and cuddly Koala? They will scratch you with the claws they use to scamper up trees. Another charming fact is that they will urinate on you once they tire of your company.
Here is a bit about Koalas
The word prompt from Nancy’s Photo a Week: Celebration
The display from last month Lismore Lantern Parade which ended with fireworks. Before the fireworks, a dance with flaming torches culminating in a fiery burning sparkling show.
The word prompt from Nancy: From Below
I am often scouting the trees for birds so sometimes I get unusual aspects of birds.
This could be called heads and tails of Little Wattlebirds
The Brown Pigeon was up high in the tree
Not all have been in the trees though
The Photo a Week Challenge word prompt: Light
I have enjoyed finding photos for this challenge. I hope you enjoy my photos of Light
From the obvious
to the less obvious
to the obscure
Did you have a favourite?
The word prompt from Nancy this week is Public Transportation
Here is my selection of Transportation
The fast trains in Europe are fast trains
The boats came through the locks on the canal near to our Paris apartment
The Helicopter is used for patient transportation to the hospital. Here it is taking off to another job.
And off they go for holiday
The word prompt from Nancy Merrill: Crossed Lines
