Welcome, it’s good to be back with another Writer’s Room offering. As always there’s something for everybody. Clouds this week looking south from our house. When I was a little boy I would lay in the back yard and stare at the clouds. I always believed there were huge cities in them and you could walk up there. No I wasn’t eating any strange mushrooms.
I took this in the animal enclosure at Queens Park, Ipswich last week. He has to be one of the cutest wallabies I’ve seen in ages. ‘Okay, you’ve basked in the cuteness, now move along there’s nothing else to see here.’
Back to the paddock. the big Roos came up on the weekend to hang around in the shade. What else can you do but groom yourself and oh yes, lick the back of your knee. The old man roo is a hefty type, after I took this he moved in, obviously expecting romance. The little fellow sprawled out in the bottom picture appears to have relaxation down pat. Dare we say it’s Rootopia here at the Smiths?
These wasps are building a nest on the veranda. I’m allergic to wasp stings so I got out the telephoto lens for this shoot. I turned the top four pics upside down so you didn’t have to crane your neck.
I love photographing bees, they move so fast. In the first pic you can see the hairs on him. The flower in the bottom right is well, a flower. I think the plant is a legume and used for stock food. I know the horses ate about an acre of it when they first came.
To get the best out of this weeks offerings I suggest you open them in a new tab or window. I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit to the writer’s room. I look forward to hearing from you and will gratefully accept suggestions as to the identity of Bert the bird and the flower. Until next time take care.
