We’re at Mum & Dad’s place for Christmas and it’s a bird haven here. I shot this perfect pair this morning while having my first cup of tea. Although I’m not an avid bird watcher or anything, they are a great subject to shoot, especially these guys which are very friendly!
For the first time our apple tree is fruiting. Hopefully they will still be there until they ripen and the birds don’t get them!
No, not that kind of weed! It’s just a grass weed, something which we have thousands of around here.
There’s just something about the soft whiteness of a magnolia bud. It oozes purity to me, although the perfect creamy whiteness doesn’t usually last more than a day once the bud opens up. This bud is from the Magnolia little gem in our front garden.
I love the tones in this blue agapanthus flower, simple but striking.
Three galahs were munching away in the young eucalyptus sapling out the back this morning. Here is one of the gallant little guys!
I was lucky enough to go out for lunch with some friends today, and this little wren was flitting about just off the balcony we were on. I’m not much of a bird watcher, but how could you not want to capture this bright little creature?
This little fella wasn’t to happy with John for starting a fire right near his resting spot. He stood his ground and showed us how cranky he was!
This fungus was at the base of a tree and was huge. The fine detail of the structure is awesome, just another of nature’s wonders.
A quick one today from our front garden. I was out just after some rain, and yes they smelled wonderful!
