Okay, so it’s a different type of sunset. I had made some sun catchers to hang from the solar shed out of old cd’s and naturally they blew down. One cd managed to hide amongst the bushes, I was out taking a few snap shots when I found it. Hmm I thought, lets try this. I turned my back to the sunset and took a picture of its reflection in the cd.Here is the sunset I took it from, I love the way the sunbeams filter through the trees and onto the grass.
I took this front on shot of a Grevillia flower in the garden and didn’t realise until it was on the computer how delicate the unfolding buds are.
Rush hour on the way to Mudgee. This was the last of the mob that we navigated through. It seemed obvious that they wanted to be in the paddock further up the road and they would go at their own pace. We shall not be mooooved.
We have a few families of Butcher Birds ( related to the Magpie in the genus Cracticus ) around the property, this young fellow was perched on the back fence. He has a hook on the end of his beak and they store excess prey on things like barbed wire fences, thorns, holes, anywhere they can actually. Hence the name Butcher Bird. When I go out on the tractor they follow, knowing I’m going to stir something up. It gets crowded when I’m doing any chainsaw work as they sit a few feet away waiting for grubs and such. They’re a friendly little bird.
Some people like decorating their houses and lawns, in northern New South Wales.
So there we have it for this week, a mixed bag of shots with the new camera ( I love it ) I hope that you enjoy them and we’ll be back next week.
