Another Gerbera but oh my what a beauty. Nature never ceases to amaze me with its colour, beauty and form.
For those who feel threatened by other traffic on the freeways, buy a Ford V8. A Dingo Scout Car to be exact. In Australia at the start of WW2 armoured vehicles were in short supply, so someone came up with this. it ended up being used to train crewman. I think it’s a rather nifty machine.
A view of a picnic area at Wivenhoe Dam, the major water supply for Brisbane and surrounding areas. I do like the blues in this.
Yes, another rose from our new garden. This is Maria Callas, what a star performer.
One of the many topiary displays in Laurel Bank park, Toowoomba. About half an acre of this park was designed for the blind. Scented gardens, sculptures etc. This place is on my to do list come spring.
This flock of Pelicans were resting in Lake Wivenhoe, doing what they do best, grooming. 🙂
We went up to Mt Cootha for Mothers Day lunch, so naturally I took a few snaps of the Brisbane skyline. This is definitely worth a visit at night.
Yes I left the pic au natural. Young Roopert had been happily drinking his milk when Mister Smooth hopped up and intimated that he was up for a little loving. That is a nipple hanging out of Mum’s pouch and I don’t need to explain what else is hanging out.
A Rainbow Lorikeet slurping on nectar at laurel bank park.
I looked out of the window the other day and saw a brown blob waddling away from the pond. My first thought, get my glasses checked, then, ‘Yikes, it’s an Echidna.’ Mad scramble for camera, it was still in the bag, then run across to the side fence to head him off. Now these little blokes can really get a move on. I took a few snaps but wasn’t happy with them. So I did a David Attenborough and flopped belly down on the grass. Thinking I was a log, or perhaps an old Geezer with a camera he kept coming. Checkout the determined look on his little face. He passed the lens and disappeared from view. I rolled on my side and there he was, nestled up against my belly. Leaping up, well struggling to get up I took the bottom picture. Yes, he’d rolled up into his defensive position. Let’s face it no one and I mean no one is going to bother him.
Well that’s your lot for another week, I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I do taking them.
