Ragtag Daily Prompt Sunday: Yard
In the older cattle yards
And to the new yards
Even some birds have a yard. Satin Bowerbirds hang in their yard and have a dance while singing a tune
A photo of my yard not all that long ago
A peek into a yard in Rome
Some yards are big enough for a horse
Didn’t think of shipyard until the last moment
Someones front yard
A rather eccentric front yard
A bit of a drive through the front yard to get to the house
Please shut the gate
There is always a restful seat in my other yard

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #137: Soft
Here is your soft tune to scroll through some images from my island home
A soft landscape at sunset
A soft cityscape through a rainy window
A blue landscape filled with mist
Our Moon and clouds during the day
A soft feather like moss cascading over a log
Just a feather I found
The beautiful Water Snowflake lilies that grow on my dam
The softness of a butterfly atop a flower
Hammad’s Weekend Sky #18
This morning the sky was quite overcast that threatened rain that didn’t eventuate.
Your song to entertain
The Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Magnificent
My besties small property is surrounded by a cattle farm. Many of my cattle photos are of the farmer next doors cattle. We were always in awe of a large black bull who sauntered around the paddocks, the other bull never seemed to mind or want to have anything to with him.
His ear tags have a lot of information coded into them. The numbers may mean the year of birth, a farm number some are herd identifiers as well as regulation ear tags. Well this big black bull has an ear tag with MM on it on one side. We wondered what name this magnificent creature had; that’s it! Mr Magnificent.
Here is Mr Magnificent just chilling in the warm sunshine on top of the hill. The MM is on the other side of the 2
One day the farmer was out walking the paddocks with a dog or two just checking on fences and going to move the temporary electric fence so the cows had a new pasture before calving. Of course we had a good old chat with Julie and I mentioned the big black bull as he was waiting first in line to get onto the fresh grass. I said we called him Mr Magnificent. Julie told us that he had been castrated because she fell in love with him and wanted to keep him but he was surplus to the herd. It was then she told us of his name. The big black bull’s name is Moo Moo.
I’ll just leave that there…..OK?

Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge: Renewal
Bird Weekly Photo Challenge – Birds With White feathers
“What do you mean it’s all about white feathers!!! What are these!!! Well I’m staying”
Sulphur-crested Cockatoo taking a stroll
Channel-billed Cuckoos. A migrant from Papua New Guinea who arrives with a raucous voice. They kick out other birds eggs from the nest, lay their eggs and leave the other bird to host the chicks. To see a smaller bird feeding a much bigger bird is distressing as that little bird will wear out from trying to keep enough feed going. They try for Ravens and Magpie nests usually.
An Intermediate Egret is wondering what all the fuss is about
I love seeing Sacred Ibis wheeling about on the current especially a huge flock….magnificent
Fly….it’s much nicer to have a stroll on the beach.
“Quick everyone….get out of here. There’s an Osprey walking along the beach coming this way”
I had to put in a Pelican didn’t I?
Royal Spoonbills always look serious to me
HI….great to see you
And a bonus Pelican
