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!
This eucalyptus tree in our front garden is just filled with buds waiting to burst into bloom. I captured some part-burst yesterday afternoon. They are perfectly, symmetrically packed into each bud. Oh, to have a macro lens to get up close to these little gems…
You never know what you will find down at Con’s place, my very artistic neighbour. This red back is always lurking around somewhere, this time down near the robots, back in the bushes!
Another of my neighbour’s creations. I am so lucky to live in Vacy Downs where I don’t need to worry about the unthinkable happening!! Check out the detail…
A quick & fun iPhone shot tonight. I am loving my iPhone 4 & I’m really starting to explore all the new aspects of Instagram. So not technically stunning, just a bit of fun tonight as the clouds roll in over Vacy.
I noticed these ants heading up a tree this afternoon and thought they could be OK to shoot, but instead of freezing them in action I wanted to capture their movement. So I have panned with the ant. I am pretty happy with this result, out of all my shots(heaps of them!), with the body fairly focussed but the extremities still showing movement. I think the different coloured bark adds interest too.
This wasn’t the exact shot I had in mind when I went out for a walk yesterday with all my boys & the puppies, and it’s technically not the best shot, but I love it anyway. I especially love the glow the sunlight has left around John, Kody & Juno.
Yesterday on my way home, the fog caught my eye. Little clumps of white stretched across the green mountains. Another vision from Vacy!
This is part of the gate down at the church in Vacy. Love the rust & the flaky paint!
