I don’t normally post this often but there seems to be a problem between WordPress and Facebook so apologies to those that have seen this pic on my Facebook page….Anyway, a detail of a Zebra at Melbourne Zoo – these are actually a very dark brown and cream in colour…
I do occasionally get to see Koalas in the wild but they are generally very high up and asleep during the day! This one was at Melbourne Zoo – I like the peaceful and wise expression it has 🙂
Summer is definitely around the corner 🙂 The clover is flowering and the bees are out! Poor things were swaying back and forth in the wind (not good for macro!) but good to see….
I had been watching beautiful clouds all day – the weather forecast was thankfully wrong and instead of the drizzle and cold we actually got a pleasant day. I took this image on my way home from work this afternoon – first cut of hay for the season. Processed using a red filter to bring out the clouds.
A different sort of post today – it contains people! Yesterday I went to the beautiful Cammeray Waters where the Wombat 24 was taking place. The endurance race lasted for 24 hours and it was a really well organised event with plenty going on. I should add that I was there to see the band my husband is in (The Wood Ol’ Boys), not to participate in the race, or be there for 24 hours for that matter – these guys are fit! The first image is better in full view so please click.
Here is a gallery of some of the riders
I took these on my way home from work yesterday afternoon with a long lens (all I had!). Considering we are about to enter summer, this week has been cold and wet – we are still bringing in wood for the stove. These are clearing rain clouds on the top of the nearby hills…

At the going down of the sun…
And in the morning…
We will remember them.
In my last post I described how disappointing the sunset was on Mount Macedon due to a thick band off fog/cloud that rolled in just before the actual sunset. Here is another image taken about 5 minutes before. This is looking over the tops of some very tall gum trees..
A few days ago I went to Mount Macedon to capture the sunset. As is the wonderfully fickle weather here, a band of thick fog rolled in just as the sun was setting. However, about 15 minutes before, the light was wonderfully gentle. I liked the golden hues on the grass through the gum trees
This was taken at the Butterfly House at Melbourne Zoo last month. What caught my eye was the seemingly prolific number of eggs she was laying (though I’m sure not all were hers)! Click in for more detail – there are a couple of Mealy Bugs on the plant too.
