Hello again 🙂 The weather has turned very cold in the last day or so which isn’t surprising – our official start of winter is this coming Thursday and winter pruning starts this week at work. The image today is from last summer which I found when looking for something else in the chaotic mess that is my hard drive and I realised I haven’t posted a black and white image for a long time! I’m a little behind on my reader but am catching up. Hope you enjoy 🙂
A big hello to everyone 🙂 It’s been 7 months since I last posted anything on my blog and I can see things have changed a lot on WP – I’m still getting my head around it! I hope everyone is well and I look forward to catching up with you all in time.
My first post for 2017 is of a juvenile rabbit enjoying the shelter of the shade on a very hot afternoon a few weeks ago. Click in for a larger view.
It hasn’t been a good few weeks for taking any new images (but I’m NOT going to go on about the weather 😯 ). This is my image for this weeks Monochrome Madness Challenge which is curated by Leanne Cole. I posted this image in colour last December, but always thought it might work in mono…so here is this beautiful hare – all eyes and ears but now in black and white 🙂
The weather has continued to be very wet, cold and miserable this last week with some of the strongest winds I’ve seen since last summer so no photo opportunities 😦 I saw this heron early in the morning looking for a meal when we went to Anglesea for the day at the start of last month. Click on the image for a better view.
Something a bit different and my offering for this weeks Monochrome Madness Challenge. Not the sharpest of images, but I was taken by their expressions just waiting patiently for their owners 🙂 Many thanks to Leanne Cole and Laura Macky for the great job they do with this challenge.
This was a funny bird (and it’s mate) that followed us around a reservoir the other week. The Kookaburra is part of the Kingfisher family with it’s name coming from the Wiradjuri language. They have an amazing call – on my first visit here, many years ago, it reminded me of monkeys even though I knew there were no monkeys in Australia, but it was 5 am in a new country – hey?!!
Now it makes me think of rain coming 🙂
As some of you will know I have tried many attempts to photograph the hares I see at work – I find them beautiful but very elusive creatures and have probably hundreds of images of them running away! Yesterday I was a little luckier!….
Another image from the zoo, this time of a gibbon. I liked the way he was as interested in what I was doing, as I was of him 🙂
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 🙂
