Picture-A-Week 2019 - Week 29

Recommended Posts

Pictures taken between Monday, July 15 and Sunday, July 21.

 

Rules: See above

That's it. This isn't a contest.

All photos taken this week are welcome (not just cruising).

Prizes will not be awarded. Discovering the joy of photography is the prize.

The idea is to get folks out using their cameras for more than vacations and toddler birthdays.

Post one. Post many. Up to you.

Have fun with your camera and share your fun with others!

An unusual sight on my neighbourhood walk today (someone had pointed it out to me)

 

A beehive hanging from a eucalypt tree

Just WOW.

 

Thanks! I've certainly never seen anything like it. The person who showed it to me said its look changes depending on the time of day and so I will try and go back this morning for another look.  unfortunately no way to get closer due to the location of the tree.

For once we had a chance to see a full moon -- last night.

While sitting outside yesterday, we had a visitor who stopped by for Happy Hour.

Last of our regular lilies.

It is hard to believe but the season for day lilies is nearly over as well.

Afternoon stroll along the waterfront of Williamstown about 5pm on a lovely winter's evening. Lo and behold, dolphins. As always, more glass....

Wow, that beehive was very interesting. 

Love the pictures of flowers.

And of course, animals are great too.

Thanks to everyone.

"Do you want to take a nap before you eat?" her Grandmother asks. "No!" she answers. "Aren't you tired?" Again the answer is no. Since Jackie is now three, she insists on sitting at our bar with her older brother at lunchtime and if she kneels on the barstool, she reaches the proper height to eat and drink like a “big person”. Prior to this picture, the two of them had spent the previous hour or so playing some mysterious made-up game that involved an inordinate amount of running from room to room. Jackie was uncharacteristically quiet just before lunch, so we should have seen this coming. That nasty old nap she refused earlier wasn’t fooled at all. It found her halfway through lunch.

 

Last Call

I'm very late to the weeklies - in fact, I only just got around last weekend to loading and sorting these shots from July 20th, and still have a handful of shots to go through from the following two weekends - shooting has been lighter in the hot humid summers as I can only stand 2-3 hours of walking - and even if I have the endurance for more, the massive afternoon lightning storms chase me back to the car, as standing in a dead-flat wetlands and being the tallest thing around isn't too smart.

Anyway, here are a few from the Saturday that fell on this week:

 

A juvenile tricolor heron looking for fish:

A red-winged blackbird chick, braving a walk up the branch from his nest:

Momma moorhen feeding her chick:

Green heron wading through the water:

A squirrel with a big catch - a ripe pond apple, all his:

A roseate spoonbill in the water:
