The word prompt from Nancy Merrill: Green
The wonderful Emerald Dove
Green Catbirds look like a bird but sound like a cat
Doesn’t this fly have fabulous green eyes

The Clouds and the Moon – Night
This photo challenge from Nancy Merrill is Look Up
Last night I went out on dusk to make sure the chook was locked up and content. I looked up
In the distance this is what I saw
Not quite a full Moon. The clouds and colours were amazing.
A bit closer and isn’t wonderful?
Peeking out from behind the tree.
I love our Moon
Don’t forget to look up whether you are inside or out.
Nancy Merrills photo a week challeng: Structure in Nature
I have posted this insect nest/cocoon before but it still intrigues as to who made this fabulous weaving of bark.

Who could resist a photo challenge from Nancy Merrill with the theme: Purple
So much Purple, here is a taste. Do you have a favourite?
Berries on a Native vine
Among the Wisteria flowers
Another beautiful Native flower
Caper Water Lilies
A Purple Swamp Hen
Inside a Torenia flower
An orchid flower I think
The wonderful Native Purple Fringe Lily
The Native Hyacinth Orchid that grows wild at my place and this year appeared in my garden for the first time
When it comes to fires, it is in the Australian Winter when the fires are most welcome. Summer fires bring dread and foreboding. So Summer is when I dig into the archives to see if there is a fire photo that may fit within Nancy Merrill photographys photo challenge prompt of By Firelight
The fires bring warmth in Winter and also a chance to burn-off some of the fallen debris from the forest that abounds my place. Sometimes I have to reduce the amount of fallen branches and leaves that accumulate around the house and garden.
Here is a bit of By Firelight
A fire blazes well alight
Flames swirl into the night
The many colours of the fires show
Deep within the embers glow
There is always someone,
Stick in hand,
To poke the embers
Making a sparkling sight
Into the dark of night
A Photo a Week Challenge from Nancy Merrill Photography: Jewel Colours
All the jewel colours rolled into one with a Rainbow Lorikeet and a Bottlebrush
“I show my Emerald better”
“What about me?” said the King Parrot with the rubies and emeralds too
The Eastern Rosella splashes the jewel colours about.
Now they are getting a bit showy I think.
