Terri’s Sunday Stills: A Rosy Outlook

I was wondering what I should post – perhaps flowers, perhaps berries, perhaps man made stuff or blimey lets go with all of them.

In my garden

This is a multi photo challenge post. Of course it features birds in my garden for Lisa’s Bird Weekly Photo Challenge as well as Tina from the Len-Artists Challenge #120 – What a Treat
Also sneaking in a photo for Basil’s Life Captured Photo Prompt: Transitioning

All the following photos are taken in my garden either walking about or from the verandahs. My home is a treat for seeing birds, insects and animals as well as flowers. Here is a song to listen to as you take a stroll with me in my garden.

This is a King Parrot transitioning from juvenile to adult male

King Parrots can be cheeky. This one is looking through my office door to see what I am doing

Blue-faced Honeyeater and a Bottle Brush flower

The Little Friarbirds like the nectar from the grevillea flowers

Everyone loves a little Eastern Yellow Robin as they hop around the garden

There is always a surprise find in the garden. I think it may be a Lacewing hunting among the leaf litter

The Yellow-faced Honeyeaters chitter chatter in the garden

Dragonflies are always flitting about or just watching on a stick

Of course I could let a post about my garden go without including a Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey

So many butterflies in my garden throughout the year. Scarlet Jezebels arrive in September in time to take advantage of the Pentas flowers

Scarlet Honeyeaters are flashing jewels as they fly about seeking nectar from flowers like this Pink Euodia

The Orchard Swallowtail Butterflies are the largest butterflies in my garden

The Hippeastrums are flowering now and the tiny Stingless Native Bees just love them

Rainbow Lorikeets add so much colour to my graden
