We visited a house for sale yesterday, a friend wanted us to look at it and give our views. I wandered off and began taking photos, naturally. I spotted this little bloke and spent far too long taking pictures of him, he was happy when I left. He scuttled all over that branch, I’m sure he thought we were playing hide and seek. It is a macro shot and looks great when you open the picture.
The flowers are a great source of food for birds, I haven’t been able to identify the bird yet. Time has been short this week and the blog is late going up. I’m sure someone over here can tell me what it is.
The snake isn’t hard to miss, he was sunning himself on the edge of a post. A non-venomous Green Tree snake he must use the post as his veranda, getting a few cosmic rays on a cool morning. Then I spied a pair of mating bugs, gardens are busy places. The barn in the big picture looks a little worse for wear, no it isn’t the house we were looking at.
Here is another look at a Bottle Brush flower, once again you will get a better view opened in another tab. Yes the bugs are back, quite friendly by the look of it. The lizard, a Skink was sunning himself not far from the snake.
I took these pictures from on top of the hill near the house we were looking at. The top two are part of an old farm fallen into disrepair. The large one is a view over Rosewood towards Flinders Peak to the south. In the foreground you can see the stumps that used to hold the farmhouse up.
This gets tricky here, the branches of the tree hung low over the water and I wanted to get a shot of the bird, a Willy Wagtail. He was diving at the water and catching bugs on the surface, when he saw the camera he sat there and didn’t move. The one on the bottom left is basically more of the reflection and the right has been reversed to give it some balance.
We were in Laidley at the bookshop yesterday, how can you write when somebody is moving house.
That’s it for this week, unless something startling comes up over the weekend. Thanks for dropping by.
