Rather special

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #139: Special Moments

A few special moments to share.

A Wanderer Butterfly coming to rest on my besties hand for a while

Having help when I really needed it while working under my car

Having chickens hatch

Having a critically endangered Regent Honeyeater visit my garden

Taking a super bad photo of a very shy and almost rare (in my area) Regent Bowerbird. One quick photo and it was gone.

Having a Eastern Yellow Robin come and sit on the back of a chair while you are having a bite to eat in the garden. He came around often at my besties old place. We called him Bobbin

Finding a Nobbi Lizard at one of my favourite places, the Raspberry Lookout, after the fires of the Summer of 2019

Discovering a Hakea flurolenta on my place for the first time. I haven’t seen it since those fires but hope it may return in time.

Discovering the delights of Paris and Venice for the first time

Venice

A little green

This months Life in Colour: Green

Jude asked that “It’s easy to find shades of green in nature, but what else can you discover?” So my quest is to find a few things that aren’t nature. Should I struggle? What do you think? This post will be a little green.

A cart so green
with eggs so clean

Street art green
must be seen

Don’t be mean
shoot that green

Lost it’s sheen
now a green

Italian shutters green
must be seen

Art piece of choice
green or turquoise

Always seen
being green

Bye

Where is love

Over the wee bridge and the building on the left hand side is where the apartment we stay when in Venice.

Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #50

This week's assignment - find an object that seems interesting because of the way the light strikes it, or because of its volume, your photograph should focus more on your subject's form

Travel Challenge day 4

I was nominated by my friend Judy Dykstra-Brown to post one favorite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to nominate someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures, and 10 nominations. Let’s see if I can make it to the end of ten days, but for now I nominate Jez
Post wherever you wish but link to me so I know you have. If you are not interested, that’s OK.
